Out-of-School Time Providers, Virtual Retreat – Feb 2&9

Posted by Children First on February 1, 2022

Do you run or support an out-of-school time organization? Do you know someone who does?

The Greater Philadelphia Extracurricular Collaborative (GPEC) is working to bring out-of-school time voices together to build a strong advocacy agenda and help out-of-school time providers who don’t often get enough support.

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, February 2 and 9, 9:00-10:30 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!
