Data Driven Decision Making for Your Afterschool Program
Data can--and should--be an important part of your Afterschool Program, both internally and externally. Having data that provides a clear overview of your Afterschool Program’s performance is increasingly important when gathering community support or raising funds. Additionally, access to data can build capacity, and inform program design and decision-making. In this session, attendees will gain an understanding of why data is useful for their Afterschool Programs, and how they can begin to take steps to develop a data framework specific to their organization.

Mapping your City to Connect Learning Across Boundaries
The design and purpose of this hands-on workshop is to identify the assets and resources available in your city, which can help you create a connected learning ecosystem. At the Chicago Learning Exchange (CLX), we know that no one organization alone can transform teaching and learning to better serve today’s young people. With this in mind, we work with a growing community of over 200 youth-serving organizations, schools, cultural institutions, city agencies, corporations, foundations and universities to learn, coordinate and reduce duplication. Learn how you can do the same in your community.
