**A special thanks to EVERYONE who helped to make the The 3rd Annual Southeastern Pennsylvania OST Summit and Resource Fair a huge success! In 2014, however, we will not be conducting this event. Very many people have come to expect this premier event each year, so we hate to disappoint. But we look forward to hopefully doing it bigger and better in 2015!

-The OSTRC Team

Hosted by the Pennsylvania Statewide Afterschool/Youth Development Network (PSAYDN) and the University of Pennsylvania’s Out-of-School Time Resource Center (OSTRC), this event brought together over 350 out-of-school time (OST) key stakeholders in the region to focus on practice, policy, and resources to build and sustain accessible quality out-of-school opportunities that support children and youth’s positive growth and development and ultimate transition to successful adulthood.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Regional OST Summit was administered by PSAYDN. Speakers and panelists represented OST experts, advocates and youth from the region and across the state. Participants had the opportunity to network and examine the state of OST in Philadelphia and surrounding counties. To visit the PSAYDN website for the agenda and other Summit details, click here.

Resource Fair
The annual OST Resource Fair was administered by OSTRC, providing an opportunity for local out-of-school time (OST), afterschool, youth development, and summer program staff to visit table displays, engage with vendors, develop professional connections, and explore the latest resources and services. This year’s combined OST Summit and Resource Fair targeted an even broader audience; included special giveaways; and featured new vendors and resources.
