Youth & Afterschool Funders Network Meeting

Tuesday, August 18, 2020
3:30pm - 4:30pm CDT

The purpose of the Youth & Afterschool Funders Network is to provide a space for member foundation staff supporting youth and afterschool focused programs, initiatives, and outcomes to connect with their peers, exchange information, and learn from one another.

During this call we will hear from Kari Denissen Cunnien, the Executive Director of Ignite Afterschool for an update on the status of Minnesota Youth & Afterschool Programs this summer and what COVID-19 and distance learning may mean for the youth and afterschool field as we transition into the new school year.  We will also hear about some new research being done to explore how we can evaluate youth work in the time of COVID and beyond. 

We will also have the chance to discuss and share what changes our foundations are currently considering in anticipation of the continuing obstacles youth serving organizations will face as they move from the summer into the school year. 

The conversation will be hosted and co-facilitated by Josh Vang, Member Services Manager, Minnesota Council on Foundations, Steven Walvig, Program Officer, Greater Twin Cities United Way and Kari Denissen Cunnien, Executive Director, Ignite Afterschool.

Log-in details will be available in your confirmation email.
