  • 2021 Indiana Summit on Out-of-School Learning (4/20 – 4/22)

    April 20 - April 22, 2021
    2020 has been defined by its challenges - a global health crisis, social injustice and unrest, and prolonged isolation from one another. As a result, we've all had to shift the way we work, the way we connect, and even the way we think.

    Now it's up to us to decide how we want to move forward.

    In the spring of 2021, the Indiana Afterschool Network will host its 10th annual Indiana Summit on Out-of-School Learning – Indiana's premier conference designed specifically for out-of-school time providers. This year's Summit will be a virtual event. The Summit brings together youth programs, schools, and community partners to connect, explore new ideas, access valuable resources, and transform learning beyond the school day for Indiana's youth. Together, we can navigate this period of uncertainty and take time to recharge, reconnect, and – most importantly – take action.
