ALC is one of 50 Statewide Afterschool Networks, supported by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. ALC is a coalition that develops partnerships, informs policies, and shapes practices that sustain and increase the number of quality youth programs across Rhode Island.
Questions addressed in this webinar included: What basic practices can you instill in your program and organization to better ensure high school students feel safe and valued? What are your concerns around issues high school students may be facing right now that impact their feelings of safety?
