Partnerships are on our to-do list year round, but it easily falls to the wayside as the day-to-day work takes precedence. However, partnerships can help us sustain our programs, grow our programs, and take some of the pressure off of staff. These resources can help you build strong partnerships.
Afterschool Alliance also has some helpful toolkits and documents to think about building partnerships.
Edutopia’s Turning the Community Into a Classroom blog describes unique partnerships between local governments and municipalities and OST programs to help youth solve local problems and connect with their communities.
