DC Collaborative Virtual Convening Schedule

The DC Collaborative continues its Virtual Convenings in response to COVID-19. Weekly schedules will be posted Mondays. We are calling all members and partners to participate in and/or lead a session!

Tuesday, 6/2/20, 11 AM: Collective Action OST Funding with DCAYA and DC Scores

DC Alliance for Youth Advocates (DCAYA), a collaboration of youth serving nonprofits in the city, has been working on bringing the community together to make sure the city council knows how important expanded learning programs are for kids during this time and as we move forward. Out of school time programs play a vital role in social and emotional functioning of children and youth. Now, more than ever, this matters. The isolation, exposure to adverse childhood experiences, and loss of opportunity  our young people are facing right now cannot be overstated.  Looking forward, providing safe places for kids to connect to each other and caring adult mentors, and process what happened this year will be critically important. We’re prepared to provide those safe spaces for our young people. Tell DC Council to hold the out of school time grant-making funding stable in FY21.  We will discuss actions to take.

Wednesday, 6/3/20, 11 AM: Summer and Out-of-School Time Programming with Sitar Arts Center and Project Create
