On behalf of the entire Agenda for Children Out-of-School Time team, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your presence and participation at our End of Year Event.

The event was filled with fun, music, delicious BBQ (shout out to Grillmaster Tyrique!), and the warm presence of friendly and familiar OST faces. Your attendance made the event a resounding success.
We were thrilled to see so many familiar and new faces coming together to celebrate the achievements, milestones, and memories of the past year. We had many brief and powerful conversations as part of our concentric circles activity, answering questions like:

We also celebrated Dee Spinkston and Daniel Weinstock, who are both moving on from their roles facilitating in the COP spaces:
