Site Visits

To Local Afterschool Programs

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Space is limited; pre-registration is required.

Each bus will tour one site.

What does afterschool education look like in Orlando? Hop on a BSH bus and visit a site in the local area. It’s a terrific way to kick off your conference experience. You’ll see effective programming, hear about program challenges and successes, and get ideas for your own work. And you’ll get inspired by dedicated staff and students you’ll meet.

The BSH planning team has collaborated with Florida’s education and community leaders to identify sites for visitation. As always, our goal was to make a variety of programming available, while considering travel time within the host city.

Pre-registration is required for site visits. Choose your preferred site on the Agenda section of your BSH registration.
