The Impact After School Conference is a two-day training opportunity for afterschool professionals and community partners. Occurring annually, the conference features dynamic workshops and keynote sessions on a variety of relevant topics such as social emotional learning, STEM, literacy, behavior management, family engagement, college and career readiness, diversity and inclusion, team-building, health and wellness, sustainability and more. The conference also provides the chance attendees to network and share best practices that they have learned through their own work. 


Impact Afterschool Virtual Conference 2020

The 2020 Impact Afterschool Conference was held virtually September 30-October 2 due to the COVID-19 pandemic with over 150 in attendance. Presenters utilized an online platform provided with funding and logistical support by the Mott Foundation, the national supporter of out-of-school time networks such as the Iowa Afterschool Alliance. With continued support from the Iowa Department of Education’s 21st Century Community Learning Center program, attendees were able to access multiple learning opportunities.
