The Case for Communication: Afterschool Stories

In this webinar Illinois Quality Afterschool staff discuss how you can intentionally design and share the story of your afterschool program and its impact. With all the daily demands on your time, it’s easy to put communication strategies on the back burner. However, communication done well can help you raise more financial support, increase your reach to families and students, provide timely feedback, and expand your access to new resources and partnerships. Presenters share strategies for understanding who your audience is, reaching your target audience with compelling data and stories, and identifying what messages will make maximum impact. Throughout this webinar, Illinois Quality Afterschool staff connect these effective communication strategies to the particular opportunities and challenges of the current moment.
