Expanding Student Success: The State of Expanded Learning in California 
Michael Funk, Expanded Learning Division Director, California Department of Education (CDE), Sacramento, CA; Heather Williams, Director, Policy & Outreach, California AfterSchool Network, Sacramento, CA 

California has the largest collection of OST programs in the nation, consisting of federal, state, local, city, community, and fee-based programs. Each system has its own unique networks, standards, and practices. Expanded Learning programs are a subset of OST programs in California that receive funding administered by the California Department of Education’s Expanded Learning Division. California's Expanded Learning programs are an integral part of young people's education, engaging them in year-round learning opportunities that prepare them for college, career, and life. Join the California Department of Education and the California AfterSchool Network for a conversation about Expanded Learning, including the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P).

Supporting LGBTQ+ Youth in the Current Political Crisis
Ted Lewis, M. Ed., Director of Youth Well-Being, Human Rights Campaign Foundation, Washington, DC

LGBTQ+ youth are under attack and that is having a devastating impact on their mental health and well-being. Over 500 anti-LGBTQ+ bills were introduced across the country in 2023 alone and the majority of that legislation targeted transgender youth. This workshop will provide an overview of the current political landscape for the LGBTQ+ community, share data from HRC’s 2023 Youth Report, and share key strategies youth-serving professionals can use to support LGBTQ+ youth in this moment.

#AfterschoolWorks: Crafting Your Afterschool Message & Lights On Afterschool Events
Tiyana Glenn, Project Manager; Sophie Kidd, Project Associate; Shaun Gray, Sr. Manager, Production and Office Operations, Afterschool Alliance, Washington, DC

Do you ever feel that your words don’t have the impact you think they should have when you talk to others about afterschool? This interactive Town Hall will discuss what works and what doesn’t when communicating about afterschool, how to tailor your message for key audiences, and how to leverage this information and build support for your program. You will also learn about our national event, Lights On Afterschool, and how to plan a Lights On Afterschool event for your program.

Addressing Hunger During the Out-of-School Time Hours
Clarissa Hayes, Deputy Director, School and Out-of-School Time Programs, Food Research & Action Center (FRAC), Washington, DC 

The out-of-school hours can be the hungriest time for the millions of children living in food-insecure households. While the federally-funded Summer and Afterschool Nutrition Programs exist to fill those nutrition gaps, they are still not reaching all of the children who need them. This Town Hall will feature national and local anti-hunger advocates as they share why addressing hunger is essential to supporting families, engaging students, and strengthening summer and afterschool programs.
