It’s that time of year again – Valentine’s Day – and LOVE is in the air.
Each year at this time, we like to remember and share all of the reasons we love afterschool. Whether it’s the convenience of the program for working parents, the awesomely exciting activities and field trips, the lifelong friendships made, or the amazing staffers that dedicate time and effort to making their programs perfect, afterschool programs are changing lives in Missouri (and nationwide) every day.
How can you show your LOVE for afterschool?
- Print off this template and snap a picture of yourself sharing why you LOVE afterschool! Share this on social media using the hashtag #IHeartAfterschool to join in the statewide and national conversation.
- Engage your partners and supporters by encouraging them to participate in this challenge! You can share these sample tweets or post ideas for engaging policymakers and others in the discussion on social media.
- Collect the heart templates from staff, parents, and youth to share at the upcoming Afterschool Advocacy Day on February 20th!
