Call for Proposals - Jump Start 2019
Utah Afterschool Network (UAN) provides quality professional learning opportunities to enhance the skills and knowledge of staff and educators working in afterschool programs throughout the state. "Afterschool" includes any program offering enrichment and academic opportunities that operate during non-school hours, such as before school, after school and summer break, serving youth ages 5-18 years old. The development of quality afterschool professionals is an imperative part of fostering youth success and providing effective, engaging, and sustainable afterschool programs.

Presenters come from a myriad of backgrounds, providing a variety of workshop topics specific to the needs of youth development and afterschool programming. We invite you to propose an interactive presentation that will expand the knowledge and skills of attendees and leave them with fresh ideas to implement in their programs. UAN values your knowledge and expertise and appreciates your interest in presenting.
