Afterschool Professionals Appreciation


Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week is a joint effort of community partners, afterschool programs, youth and child development workers and individuals who have committed to declaring the last full week of April each year as a time to recognize and appreciate those who work with youth during out-of-school hours. Join us for celebrations and display your appreciation to thank afterschool professionals who make a difference in the lives of young people.

 The National Afterschool Association developed a toolkit to help you prepare for this important week in your community, whether you are a family who participates in afterschool programming or work in the field of child and youth development. Some resources available in the toolkit include: 

  • Ways to honor afterschool professionals 

  • Videos to share 

  • Sample social media posts for individuals or organizations 

  • Sample press releases

In acknowledgement of Afterschool Professionals Appreciation, the Staff and Board of Directors of FASA would like to extend our Appreciation to all Afterschool Professionals. 

We thank you for your hard work and dedication to the children and families that you serve.
