Shawn Proctor Elementary School Out-of-School-Time Network Coordinator
I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Shawn Proctor, and I’m thrilled to serve as the first Elementary School- Out-of-School Time (OST) Network Coordinator. Being born and raised in Cambridge, I know firsthand that I’m working for a community that is innovative and dedicated to serving all as well as prioritizing equity for those who need it most. Through the years, I’ve spent most of my professional career serving both children and families in the Cambridge community. I have to say, nothing brings more joy to my heart than seeing those same families and others alike gaining access to programs and resources that they deserve.
The Elementary School-Out-of-School Time Network is guided by seven Guiding Principles that shape our approach to serving children and families across the City. One of those Principles is: Collective Power. We recognize that advancing change that prioritizes equity and access requires interdependence and collective action. We accomplish more together!
My goals include collaborating with you to create a network that: ● Will meet monthly. ● Value parent, staff, and providers voices ● Build powerful partnerships. ● Share promising practices, tools, strategies, and data. ● Create neighborhood sub-committees.
Whether you were born, raised and lived in Cambridge your entire life or if you’re brand new to our community, if you have or work with elementary school aged-youth, we would benefit from you being a part of this Network!
