The COVID-19 pandemic has created many barriers and interruptions to out-of-school time programming. As a result, service providers have been forced to pivot to virtual learning platforms to continue to serve youth. Providers were uncertain about what to expect and how to tailor their programs to meet the current challenges.
We hosted the 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) Virtual Town Hall with OSSE last Wednesday, July 1st to provide further clarity and a space for providers to ask questions and seek guidance. We had a great turnout with over 35 participants, which sent a strong message about the importance of this conversation and the need for more clarity from OSSE.
