APOST Summer Programming Roundtable

Date: Thursday, March 25 10:00 am – 11:30 am

What are your plans for summer programming this year? Will you continue to operate programming virtually? Are you planning to operate summer programming in-person? Or are you planning for a combination of both?

Join APOST for this Summer Programming Roundtable to connect and discuss with programs across Allegheny County how you’ve been planning for summer, what you may be able to incorporate into your plan from other programs, and collaborations you might be able to make for an engaging, safe and fun filled summer for youth!

We’ll have the AIU there to speak briefly about potential connections this summer and Trying Together to talk more about the benefits of updating your program in the Allegheny Child Care Finder. We hope to see you there!
