Throughout the conference, attendees have opportunities to expand their knowledge of afterschool programming, network with others in the field, and learn new strategies to help improve outcomes for the youth they serve.

As this year marks our 2nd year back in-person, UAN is excited to celebrate the strides we have made as a community in afterschool and focus on our theme Keys to Quality. The 2023 Jump Start Afterschool Conference will guide us on strategies around quality in afterschool programming, and reconceptualize keys to success. Experts keynote speakers and presenters will empower attendees on every level to continue to strive for the best quality in afterschool programming.
