The National AfterSchool Association (NAA) works to ensure that families who want and need expanded learning opportunities and care during out-of-school hours are able to access high quality programs. NAA is the membership organization for professionals who work with children and youth in school and community-based settings to provide a wide variety of learning experiences during the school year and the summer.
The organization works actively to disseminate the best-practice thinking of the afterschool and youth development profession in a variety of modalities, including its website, annual conference, professional development opportunities and online and print resources.
With this in mind, NAA has made new resource materials, entitled "Afterschool Quality Briefs," available for download.
The five afterschool quality focus briefs include:
- Identifying and Improving Quality Programs
- Promoting Professionalism
- Funding Quality Initiatives
- Afterschool Quality Matters: A Call to Action
- The State of Afterschool Quality Focus Briefs Media Toolkit
