The Vermont Afterschool Conference is an annual event that brings together hundreds of expanded learning programs, partners, advocates, and educators from around the state for a full day of learning, networking, and celebration.

We are not planning for an in-person event in 2021. Please sign up for our e-newsletter to learn about other virtual professional development opportunities that we’re offering throughout the year!

Professional Development and Networking

In total, this statewide professional development experience offers six hours of quality training plus time for visiting with exhibitors, hearing from state leaders and special guests, and networking with other programs and providers from around the state.

  • Our 2019 conference offered 24 workshop selections that focused on best practices in out-of-school time programming, positive youth development, and expanded learning opportunities.
  • Full-day workshops offered in-depth training for participants who wanted a deeper dive on a single topic.
  • The conference concluded with the Afterschool Café. The Afterschool Café is an open networking time where attendees come together for music, food, sharing, and fun. Raffle prizes are also awarded during the Café thanks to the generosity and donations of more than 40 local programs, businesses, and organizations.
