Afterschool programs play an important role in the development of children. They provide students with a safe place to learn and grow outside of the traditional classroom setting. In order for students to thrive in these programs, it is important that spaces are created where all students feel a sense of belonging. During this session, participants will receive an easy to implement framework that can be used to support their efforts. These efforts range from finding ways to elevate cultural awareness in the programs to taking intentional actions in order to create spaces that are respectful and dignified for all.
