WHY AFTERSCHOOL PROFESSIONALS ARE AMAZING…

OAN believes that kids are incredibly awesome and that they deserve to reach their full potential, as they define it.

OAN also believes that behind every successful kid is a supportive adult mentor cheering them on… and that adult making a difference in the life of a youth is likely to be an Afterschool professional.

But often these amazing, dedicated, passionate professionals are under supported and under resourced.

That is where OAN comes in. 

OAN is a convener, a connector, a collective voice and a catalyst for change in YOUR field, the field of Afterschool and Summer Learning professionals. OAN provides professional development and advocacy for the field, and can help you get connected to resources in Ohio and across the nation. Scroll down to learn more about what we can do for you!
