Greater Philadelphia Extracurricular Collaborative Planning Retreat – Feb 2 & 9

Posted by Greater Philadelphia Extracurricular Collaborative on January 18, 2022

The Greater Philadelphia Extracurricular Collaborative (GPEC) is an umbrella organization of out-of-school-time (OST) providers and foundations that aims to empower the OST ecosystem in Southeast Pennsylvania through advocacy and member-services.

Throughout the pandemic, OST providers have played a critical role in supporting children, families and School Districts. Yet, in the absence of a collective voice for our region’s OST ecosystem, the contributions of OST providers are often unrecognized or under-resourced.

To address this issue, GPEC is holding a two-day virtual retreat on February 2nd and 9th from 9-10:30 am to discuss GPEC’s strategic vision for the future and develop potential 2022 advocacy activities. If you lead an organization that runs or supports out-of-school time or extracurricular activities, we need your voice!

Register yourself and your colleagues today so that together we can develop an informed, ongoing work and advocacy agenda that truly represents the experience of the OST sector.
