February 22-26, 2021

Despite a growing push for financial literacy classes to be offered in schools, many youths across the state still do not have access to the resources that they need to prepare them for the future. Savings Week aims to help bridge the gap by familiarizing youth of all ages with the financial literacy tools that will help them succeed. Professionals will lead workshops that cover a variety of topics like budgeting, financing education, investing, and more.

Deadline: Monday, March 1, 2021

At PSAYDN, we want to better understand the afterschool workforce to support professional growth, improve representation in advocacy efforts, and help to advance equity within the field.

With only five minutes of your time, you will help uncover trends and identify opportunities and gaps in the out-of-school time field that will inform new strategies.

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to OST programs in 2020 and to this day. In order to provide consistency in results for an OST landscape overview, we ask that you consider reflecting and responding to the questions in a pre-COVID-19 program setting. You will be able to provide feedback about OST during the pandemic at the end of the survey.

This survey should be completed by anyone who works with or on behalf of youth in out-of-school time.

Contact PSAYDN for additional questions regarding the survey.
