Making After-School Cool Podcast

EP 88: Part 1 of CASE for Kids End of the Year Celebration

May 6, 2022

Today we are featuring the CASE for Kids, End of the Year Celebration to highlight After School Professionals Appreciation Week.  Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week is annually celebrated the last week of April and includes celebrations and public relations efforts to highlight and support all the afterschool professionals who make a significant difference in the lives of young people. This episode I interviewed OST professionals to learn their perceptions of the importance of after school programs.

During this podcast you will learn the following:

  • What is great about the OST field?
  • What motivates them to work with youth?
  • Why is it important to have after school programs available in your community?
  • What advice would you give anyone who wants to work with youth?
