Taken from the NAA Website:
The mission of the National AfterSchool Association is to foster development, provide education, and encourage advocacy for the out-of-school-time community.
NAA is the membership association for professionals who work with children and youth in diverse school and community-based settings to provide a wide variety of extended learning opportunities and care during out-of-school hours. Our members include afterschool program directors, coordinators, sponsors, front-line staff, school leaders, principals, teachers, paraprofessionals, board of education members, non-profit leaders, advocates, community leaders, policymakers, researchers, and more.
We respect and celebrate our diversity. NAA is working to assure that the vision of high-quality learning experiences for all children and youth both in and out of school becomes a reality. NAA recognizes that quality afterschool programs provide positive child and youth development and meet a critical need for keeping kids safe and families productively employed. NAA understands that families need a wide range of interesting and age-appropriate programming choices to be available and accessible when their children are not in school.
Pop on over to the new website read the great posts and consider joining the National AfterSchool Association, Oases Online attended the annual convention this year in Indianapolis as an Exhibitor and it was one of the best organized shows we have attended.
It was our first real foray into the AfterSchool club and care market, having been primarily serving tutoring providers, and Oases featured and demonstrated the new After School Program Management module in the oases software. We discovered many opportunities where tutoring providers could expand and diversify their services. So go on, take a look![divider top=”0″]
