ACEs in OST Webinar | NCASE & NAA

Mar 28, 2019 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Out-of-school time (OST) programs can play a role in mitigating and preventing adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), which are disruptive to a school-age child’s academic and social development. State policies and initiatives are often the catalysts that support OST programs in this critical work.

This webinar, hosted by the National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment (NCASE) and the National Afterschool Association (NAA), will include a discussion of:

  • Research about school-age children’s development and the impact of ACEs
  • Strategies, challenges, and solutions for providing support for school-age children in OST programs in the areas of social and emotional development, safe zones, family engagement, and academics
  • Promising practices for state systems-building that can strengthen supports to help school-age children overcome ACEs and build resilience.
