About the Connecting Communities Policy Symposium Afterschool & Extended Learning Opportunities
The Connecting Communities Policy Symposium in Boston, MA brought together political and field leaders to define a stronger, more unified state policy agenda. One theme that surfaced throughout the symposium is that tailored approaches to using time, place and content are essential if we are to engage and motivate young people—and even more powerful when driven by shared goals.
