On Thursday, October 12, 2017 the Ohio Afterschool Network Strategic Leadership Team voted overwhelmingly to adopt a new mission, vision and quality statement to reflect the intention and the future work for the Network and members.

Mission: OAN convenes stakeholders to advocate for, support and facilitate the development of quality, sustainable Out-of-School time programs for Ohio’s children and youth.

Vision: All of Ohio’s children and youth have access to quality Out-of-School time programs.

Quality Statement: OAN believes quality in Out-of-School time programs is defined as programs that have intentional and strong program design, competent staff, effective partnerships, program evaluation and improvement plans.
