Teachers-only session begins Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week at ArtWell

Thank you afterschool professionals and partners for making a difference in the lives of young people!

An estimated 10.2 million children participate in afterschool programs each year. Today, afterschool programs are viewed as much more than just childcare. They are widely credited as the way to enhance education in STEM, literacy, the arts, social and emotional learning, health and wellness, and more.

We encourage you to join us in thanking the afterschool professionals in your life. Here are some ideas on how you can show your appreciation:

  • Declare on social media: “I believe Afterschool professionals make a difference in the life of a child. #heartofafterschool”
  • Give a hand-written card from you and/or your child to the afterschool professional in your life.
  • Send an email to an afterschool professional’s supervisor describing why that person is appreciated.
