The Ohio Afterschool Network, in partnership with other agencies in the state, will host a Mayoral Summit in the spring of 2017 at the Ohio State House.
At the Mayoral Summit, local city leaders and their teams will engage with Afterschool and Summer Learning advocates to discuss the issues that impact communities – such as truancy, food insecurity, youth risky behaviors, college and career readiness and children and youth health – and engage in conversation about how Afterschool and Summer Learning program are addressing these issues in high-quality programs. Legislators will be encouraged to be a part of the conversation alongside local leaders.
Currently this project is in the planning stages. More updates on progress will be discussed at OAN Quarterly Meetings and monthly calls.
OAN would like to thank the National League of Cities and Matt Zone for their support on this project.
Partner agencies include
- Afterschool All Stars
- Voices For Ohio’s Children
- (more updates coming soon!)
