Stephanie Haas, Portland Tennis & Education in Oregon!
Heidi Ham
23:29
Folks representing so many roles and orgs - Parks and Rec, Libraries, Science Museums, faith based programs, state intermediaries, afterschool stakeholders - executive members, advocate members, afterschool influencers!
Heidi Ham
24:28
Seeing NAA state affiliate leaders, next generation leader honorees, and most influential in afterschool honorees!
Dorothy Moulthrop
25:39
I'm curious who is on this call from Ohio.
Heidi Ham
25:42
Right on!
Rebecca Fabiano
25:59
<3 “Youth work as liberation work!”
Heidi Ham
26:31
Rebecca Fabiano - yes!
Carrie Lienemann
28:09
Hi all, from Nebraska GBR!
Heidi Ham
28:14
Time to Champion those who are risking their lives and the lives of their families to serve those in their communities!
Chaelyn Lombardo
28:20
I love that, Isabelle!
elizabeth linthicum
28:41
yes, yes!
Dana Dixon
28:47
RIght!
Heidi Ham
29:02
Nothing about us without us!
Heidi Ham
29:24
We don't need to be saved, we need resources. We have the knowledge and we have the skill.
Rebecca Fabiano
29:30
As a field we MUST get out and lead! There is so much to be learned from our rich history of developing positive relationships, SEL and whole-child development.
Heidi Ham
29:34
We are the essential workforce for the essential workforce.
Paige Kluck
29:43
I lived through that Katrina experience as well so definitely understand
Rob Wisniewski
30:33
We need to work as ONE community across the nation for all childcare and service for all families.
Pamela Eubanks
30:44
So very true!
Heidi Ham
30:56
That's right, Rob!
Dorothy Moulthrop
31:49
So true! And now their kids are not in school and are often at home alone all day
Rob Wisniewski
32:03
And many without meals
Harvey Zuckerman
32:34
With all due respect can we stay on topic...
Carla Casimir
32:52
very true
Harvey Zuckerman
32:54
This is getting a bit political.
Kari Taylor
33:00
i agree harvey
Heidi Ham
35:25
it may seem political, but at the root is that future of afterschool will need to take past systemic issues of inequity into consideration so that we don't perpetuate those inequities and additional inequities that are being exacerbated by COVID-19.
Rebecca Fabiano
36:25
and also expensive to pay for subscriptions for project management tools- even Zoom is $$ if you want to be able to do certain things
Bianca Zaharescu
36:26
It’s political in the sense that existence IS political, period… especially for the majority of people in this country, with the exception of some who have the privilege of existing in a “non-political” way
Yasmin Schwartz - Cypress Hills LDC - Brooklyn
37:09
How are you thinking about relationship building in a virtual space?
Brielyn Flones
37:33
How are afterschool programs preparing for re-openings?
Chaelyn Lombardo
37:46
https://sites.google.com/view/mykkafterschoolathome/home
Karla Johnson
38:00
Our network in SD is providing virtual training experiences with platforms already in existence that providers can access.
Rebecca Fabiano
38:02
The Search Institute has some new resources from their developmental relationship framework that’s helpful for building relationships with youth
Dana Scott
38:10
Even virtual has inequities. How are you working with OST programs with students that don't have technology or OST professionals in communities that do not have broadband access?
Proverb Newsome
38:10
We have done that as well. We have had out of 120 students k-8 we have had a 52% re-engagement rate.
Tiff Lillie
38:22
We're currently providing virtual programming, virtual staff training, and virtual family engagement. Also in preperation for Summer planning a blended model in the event that we're able to provide some in-person programming.
Vonia Bowie
38:48
Thanks Heidi! It's being uncomfortable with addressing these "political" topics that keeps us from making progress.
Rob Wisniewski
39:07
Yes, thanks Heidi!
Heidi Ham
39:08
thinking about what you do to build relationships in person and how to create those virtually.
Anna Almerico
39:33
Idaho Out-of-School Network tailored a document from CT to create a guidance manual for reopening. It can be found at this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tNr9zlnu__lapir-fFt-XQDVjR4QeZJS/view
Yasmin Schwartz - Cypress Hills LDC - Brooklyn
39:45
@danascott we text families the link to googlemeet to attend live activities. the inequities are very serious and this has been an effective workaround for our beacon program here in brooklyn
Heidi Ham
39:55
Tiff Lillie - would you be interested in sharing more? If so, can you email info@naaweb.org so that we can connect with you?
Vincent Arroyo
40:45
In a Trainer role, we are natural at relationship building so through our TOT with CalSAC we made it more intentional during virtual trainings. We have activities built into each session.
Betsy Ducharme
40:52
How will afterschool programs work if schools reopen with modified school schedules? Half days? Do we even attempt online after school with elementary students?
Emma Spencer
41:33
Hi all, Emma Spencer, Afterschool for Children and Teens Now (ACT Now) Coalition from Illinois. We are collaborating with OST providers to share out resources on responding to needs of youth in the state, creating Town Halls for the 21ST CCLC providers in the state, newsletters with policy updates and ways to get tech/internet to folks. We also have created a webinar series on Afterschool During COVID-19 and going forward (various resources on remote family engagement, remote learning, etc): http://www.actnowillinois.org/act-nows-afterschool-during-covid-19-webinar-series/
Dana Scott
41:50
Thanks Yasmin. We have huge barriers for students and service providers/staff in rural communities where there is no access. And across the state the tech barrier for students and staff is real.
Brian Brandt
42:29
I worry that when we return to in-person, social distancing measures will set back SEL. I wonder how others are preparing to keep a focus on SEL?
Vincent Arroyo
42:34
Yay Aleah!
Heidi Ham
42:58
Anna - NAA and many of it's affiliates contributed to that doc which can be used in concert with CDC guidance. https://naaweb.org/professional-development/item/1266-proposed-guidance-for-the-establishment-of-emergency-child-care-services-during-the-covid-19-pandemic
Heidi Ham
43:24
@Brian this is a valid concern!
Yasmin Schwartz - Cypress Hills LDC - Brooklyn
43:46
How are people thinking about the difference between childcare needs and youth development/SEL needs in our field?
Callie Ranes
43:49
Anyone have any resources and suggestions for fee based services, which right now have no income coming in. Budget's being depleted paying staff finishing contract terms; and uncertainties when we can restart programming and having reduced budget.
Ariel Potter
44:08
What are the methods that OST providers have found most effective with connecting/staying in contact with the families we serve?
Brian Brandt
44:20
We are preparing by having activities ready that have 6 ft distance but focus on SEL.Our social distancing activities mobile app is free to all.Link is at https://socdistance.goodbarber.app
Brielyn Flones
44:35
Are any afterschool programs currently offering care for essential workers? So curious to know how you are operating and protecting staff and students.
Melissa Tramel
44:36
Brian - ASP staff are taking SEL online courses through Sanford Inspire to better support our students when we return.
Dana Scott
45:17
Is anyone running into barriers where OST programs connected with districts want to run summer programming (virtual/blended) but districts made the decision to close over the summer?
Nathan Winegar
45:22
We are currently serving essential workers by providing care at one location and have done so for 7 weeks. We also provide laptops for these students to login and zoom with their teachers. We are now preparing our summer camps across the district to serve the 1,200 students who registered. www.bascisd.com
Melissa Tramel
45:31
IS it possible to have a document with all these great resources to have later on?
Callie Ranes
45:50
Dana we are considering a smaller camp term with our district
aleah rosario
46:00
Really honored to work collaboratively with my California partners to ensure the infrastructure that supports the people and programs is responsive. Asset mapping would be a great exercise for the "system" during this time.
Heidi Ham
46:04
@nathan thank you for the work you and your team is doing.
Mindy Labriola
46:24
We are offering emergency full -time child care programs for first responders, medical personnel, etc. Social Distancing at the program is difficult. It's doable, but very different.
Heidi Ham
46:30
Right on @aleah - we appreciate you all and the work you are doing now and have always done!
Rob Wisniewski
46:31
Current programs in Iowa are taking temps of students at the entry and limiting building access of parents. Taking temps of employees as well.
Vonia Bowie
46:33
Here in D.C. we've seen massive concerns re: the digital divide. Many families either don't have devices or no internet access. How are others managing to stay connected with those families who don't have remote/digital access?
Jennifer Smith
46:49
In Wisconsin, WAN is providing TIC in AFS courses while programs and schools are closed to help prep staff for reintegration.
Yasmin Schwartz - Cypress Hills LDC - Brooklyn
46:53
NYC summer funding has been cut and we are currently running advocacy campaigns about this
Karen Bierhaus
46:57
@Dana Yes, that is happening in WY. We are very concerned about how to approach this issue from small, rural communities to our largest district.
David Martineau
47:00
At the Weikart Center we are prepping and resourcing our certified trainers to deliver virtual versions of our Youth Work Methods to their networks and organizations. We have also made our newly revised online Youth Work Methods free to anyone through end of June.
Emmanuel Donaby
47:23
Yes! What are some stratigies or ideas for entering this “new world” when we get back to trying to find a new norm?
Melissa Tramel
48:47
Preschools in California are opening up for all families on May 8. I think preschools would be a great place to start looking at what works and what doesn’t.
Betsy Ducharme
49:59
Melissa Tramel, what are guidelines for opening preschools?
Heidi Ham
50:02
@Vonia - for sure! This inequity was called out in a report NAA commissioned about https://naaweb.org/news/item/774-funding-will-address-the-homework-gap-identified-in-new-report?highlight=WyJob21ld29yayIsIidob21ld29yayIsImdhcCIsImdhcHMiLCJnYXAnIiwiaG9tZXdvcmsgZ2FwIl0=. I saw the DC mayor was adding free wifi hotspots to each ward of the District. Has that happened yet?
Rebecca Fabiano
50:30
These are SUPER helpful guidelines for opening schools/summer camps and day care centers
Rebecca Fabiano
50:31
Center for Disease Control (CDC) Guidelines for Re-Opening Schools and Day Campshttps://rise.articulate.com/share/nrm7Eu_z3bGckbE8GZtegVksOVj5jlrrCenter for Disease Control (CDC) Guidelines for Re-Opening Child Care Providershttps://rise.articulate.com/share/7hScY6-7YAimNsJr8aoyGKwKqoIu7GRv
Heidi Ham
51:11
ChildCare.gov’s New “COVID-19 Resources and Information” PageCoronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has brought a new set of challenges for families and child care providers to navigate. ChildCare.gov has recently launched a new dedicated COVID-19 Resources and Information webpage to help them navigate these challenges. ChildCare.gov now includes information to help families and child care providers learn more about the impact of COVID-19 in their state or territory, including ways to find emergency care.
Vonia Bowie
51:24
Hotspots have been distributed, though not certain how widely...
Heidi Ham
51:44
@Emmanuel what ideas have you and your team discussed?
Vincent Arroyo
52:34
YES!
Heidi Ham
52:48
Take care of ourselves in order to take care of others.
Kari Taylor
53:21
Thank you everyone for the resources! These are so helpful!!
Joseph Moheban
53:31
Love that- lead by example. Start small.
Denise Nichols
53:45
@Melissa Tramel I’m trying to add the chat resources into a e mail.
Vonia Bowie
53:51
Yes!
Connie McCullough
54:04
So true. I find myself pushing myself too far because others are not showing up. Self care is so important.
Vincent LaFontan
54:30
Summer Camps are opening on June 29th in Connecticut. Summer programs will be the first programs to reopen--and will help guide the reopening of school for the fall. So afterschool and summer providers will actually influence schools significantly this summer. We are staying very aligned to our state health department guidelines and then layering on good and practical additional safety protocols. What's happening with summer programs in other states?
Tiff Lillie
55:14
I work for the school department in my community and we are on a Mayor's taskforce on re-opening.
Heidi Ham
55:33
@Tiff where are you from?
Jessica Butler
55:40
we have opened our Early Education Center this week in Milwaukee, WI
Rob Wisniewski
55:41
Central Iowa is looking at potentially opening July 6th or waiting until the school year.
Leslie Einhorn (CASA SF she/her)
55:55
As ideas like staggered school days and socially distant classrooms are being discussed how do we ensure that policymakers are thinking about those of us that provide OST services at school sites?
aleah rosario
56:18
Here is a helpful document from San Diego County Office of Ed "COVID-19 Planning Assumptions"

Brian Brandt
57:10
GREAT!
Sara Benzkofer
57:15
We serve school-age care programs that operate in school districts and they are scenario planning for summer while we wait for guidance from the state, who say they’ll be providing to us in the next week or so. We’re in MN.
Tiff Lillie
57:21
@heidi Ham I'm from Massachusetts, Framingham Public Schools.
Kathleen Carmona
57:24
In PA we are having conversations about the reopening in a school based summer program and we are in conversations with our school district about what are going to be the safety procedures we will be following and what that means to the quality to our program?
Brian Brandt
58:30
Looking for collaborators on SEL activities that have the 6ft social distancing. Our social distancing activities mobile app is free to all.Link is at https://socdistance.goodbarber.app
Connie Thompson
58:47
We are having to have our summer program virtual. If anyone has any suggestions on some things we can do virtually we would really appreciate it.
Melissa Tramel
59:23
Virtual Scavenger hunts! Kids loved it
Tiff Lillie
59:43
It would be great to have a specific conversation on fee-based summer programs vs. free/grant funded summer programs
Audrey Walker
59:47
Check out second step covid 19 resources and Reading Rockets WETA
Callie Ranes
59:55
@Tiff yes!
Yasmin Schwartz - Cypress Hills LDC - Brooklyn
59:59
Maybe we can have breakout rooms where peple get to discuss these topic areas to collaborate and come up with or identify current solutions
EDILIA SUAREZ-HARRISON
01:00:08
A reality question came from my team on this situation. How are we realistically keep Kindergartners six feet apart from their friends?
Tiff Lillie
01:00:09
@Yasmin- love that idea!
Rob Wisniewski
01:00:18
My twin daughters have had classroom Zoom meetings with their classmates
Heidi Ham
01:00:19
First, think about your organization and your program's mission first - what have you been trying to accomplish in the past and what does that look like now.

Kimberley Castleton
01:03:16
thank you everyone. I’m going to look into your app Brain Brandt it looks like a very helpful resource. virtual connections for kids is going to be tough if this continues much longer so thank you in advance for all the trauma informed trainings on how to support families and kids when we return. thank you everyone
Yasmin Schwartz - Cypress Hills LDC - Brooklyn
01:03:17
I would love to talk more about meeting childcare needs from home and supporting families during crisis.
Kathleen Carmona
01:03:36

Jessica Butler
01:03:43
@aubrey Y4Y has been wonderful and I’m using it for my staff
Chaelyn Lombardo
01:04:10
@BrianBrandt: Today in our online site meeting we are talking about growth mindset and we are making a craft: GrowthMindset Fortune Teller/ Fidget Toys for ourselves…but kids can make them too. Outside squares: Dream, Believe, Achieve, Persist. Inside triangles: Hope, Commit, Try, Persevere, Confident, Resilient, Dedicated, Strong. And the open-up parts, 4 affirmations or quotes about GM, like “Don’t say can’t…say I can’t yet.” And “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”-Wayne Gretzky….Something like that maybe. It works on SEL: Personal Development and you can work independently (6 ft apart). We are also making “Vision Boards” of our Fixed Brain vs. our GM Brain with personal affirmations.
