In a single decade, the afterschool field has shown that when a group of committed stakeholders come together to share ideas, build consensus, and pool their talents, a series of incremental changes can culminate in a major transformation. Having met the challenges of the last decade, the field is stronger and better positioned to face the new, more complex challenges that lie ahead.

The Power of Afterschool and the Future of Learning
In recognition of our tenth anniversary, RIASPA proudly unveiled a new research brief, The Power of Afterschool and the Future of Learning, at our January 25, 2012, Quarterly Membership Meeting. This brief report showcases the gains the afterschool field has made in last ten years as well as our vision for the next ten. If this vision speaks to you and you wish to partner with us to improve education in our state, please do not hesitate to contact us: (401) 331-2638.
