January Advocacy Tip:

Building a foundation of support for out-of-school time programs starts with telling your program's story to your community. To get started, encourage staff, parents and children to share personal stories about the positive effects of the program. Capture these narratives in written form or, preferably, through video recordings, creating a comprehensive catalog of stories that can be utilized to promote your program both online and in-person.
