Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week, sponsored by the National Afterschool Association (NAA), is a time each April, when we recognize and appreciate those who work with youth during afterschool hours. It is a joint effort including community partnerships, afterschool programs, youth and child care workers, families and individuals. The week is marked by celebrations and public relations efforts to encourage people to thank afterschool professionals who make a difference in the lives of young people in their communities.

We hope you will join MnSACA in promoting this special week. Share how your program is celebrating with us on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #heartofafterschool.
