We are proud to open nominations for our annual Purple Star Award for instructional excellence. Instructors can nominate other After School Matters instructors using the link in their Forum Invitation email.
Instructor Talent Shines!
In place of our in person gallery and closing performance, we are excited to open the application for a virtual Instructor art gallery and video submissions of Instructor Performances at Instructor Forum! ASM instructors, check your email for the link to submit work.
Congratulations to our 2020 Purple Star Award winners!

We want to continuously improve our professional development to meet the needs of our instructor community.

The Instructor Forum is a full day of workshops, breakout sessions, and activities that support After School Matters instructors in continuous improvement. The Instructor Forum offers an opportunity for professional development, a chance to come together as a community and learn from one another, and a space to celebrate instructor work.
