To achieve its goal of expanding access to high-quality afterschool programs, the Iowa Afterschool Alliance provides professional development and training to help improve and maintain the quality of programming available to children and families.

Impact After School Conference

The Impact After School Conference is a two-day training opportunity for afterschool professionals and community partners. Occurring every spring, the conference features dynamic workshops and keynote sessions on a variety of relevant topics such as social emotional learning, STEM, literacy, behavior management, family engagement, college and career readiness, diversity and inclusion, agriculture, team-building, health and wellness, and more. The conference also provides the chance attendees to network and share best practices that they have learned through their own work. Registration for the 2020 conference is coming soon!
