JOIN OUR PARTNERSHIP DIRECTORY

Does your organization provide resources or services that afterschool programs in Idaho can access? If so, we'd love to have you join our partnership directory. We've recently revamped our partnership directory so that it could be integrated with our program directory. We are hoping to provide a robust list of local, state, and national resources that programs can access to improve their programming.

Here are a few examples of organizations that we would like to have in our directory. Those that:
-Visit programs either once or on an ongoing basis to provide direct service
-Offer funding to programs
-Provide professional development
-Offer a site for field trips
-Contain a website with resources and activities
-Consult with afterschool programs
-Etc.

If you would like to be included in the partnership directory, please take a few minutes to register your partnership. If you were previously listed as a partner in our old directory, you will need to register your partnership again. You may direct any questions to Emily Bohman (idahoafterschool@gmail.com) or Anna Almerico (aalmerico@jannus.org). Thank you!

NEW BRIEF ON SUPPORTING AND PROMOTING MENTAL HEALTH IN OUT-OF-SCHOOL TIME


NCASE has published a new brief on Supporting and Promoting Mental Health in Out-of-School Time. This brief highlights the crucial role out-of-school time (OST) programs play in supporting and promoting children’s healthy development, inclusive of mental health needs. In addition, the brief shares research and information on the current mental health needs of school-age children, their families, and the OST workforce. These needs have grown and changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Children as well as parents and the OST workforce can benefit from mental health supports provided directly or indirectly in OST programs.
