Two-Way Streets: Replicating City-Level Afterschool System Efforts at the State Level and Applying State Lessons Locally

There is no need to reinvent the wheel, especially with the significant traction regarding afterschool practices and policy at both the city and state levels. When city leaders intentionally partner with their respective statewide afterschool networks, many new opportunities arise that save time and simplify and align policies at both levels. Join the conversation about leveraging strategies, including: creating quality standards, utilizing quality assessment tools, supporting the creation of citywide youth master plans, developing briefings for mayoral and city council candidates, shaping advocacy campaigns, drafting joint Lights On Afterschool! resolutions and designing citywide afterschool systems.

Partnerships with State Municipal Associations: Increasing Your Reach to Local Elected Officials in Your State

State municipal associations (the statewide organization representing mayors and city councilmembers) can be ideal partners for statewide afterschool networks. Participants in this session will learn from networks that have hosted a statewide mayoral summit in coordination with the municipal association and explore how these partnerships emerged, ways the municipal associations supported intensive outreach efforts to recruit city leaders, and potential future opportunities to work with municipal officials on the impact of afterschool and the role city government can play to support citywide afterschool systems.

Afterschool as a Tool to Engage Juvenile Justice Stakeholders

In what ways can afterschool be championed as a crime prevention strategy? In Wyoming, the network is partnering with the Juvenile Justice Department and the Department of Family Services to provide afterschool opportunities to juveniles as a condition of their probation. The network acts as a clearinghouse for resources and development and facilitates workshops and presentations to make the case that afterschool programs can benefit youth on probation, lower at-risk behaviors and increase academic achievement and graduation rates. Participants will discuss strategies to engage juvenile justice stakeholders and learn how expected reauthorization of juvenile justice legislation will impact states and local communities.

Creative Partnerships with Media

Public television and cable media are a major but often underutilized resource. Participants will examine network partnerships forged with public television and cable media to disseminate messages and information, engage new partners and develop compelling collateral. State network media and cable partners will discuss how to approach local public television stations, cable or other media to establish a mutually beneficial partnership that can advance the conversation about afterschool and summer programs. The session will feature video clips and a Prezi platform used to illustrate Nebraska’s partnership, which other networks could replicate.
