Phillip Smith and Ben Hinkle-Wszalek, Transact Communications, LLC
Out-of-school-time (OST) programs benefit from community support, and engaging with community partners is a critical part of any program’s funding sustainability plan. Knowing what information to share and how to engage community partners in a meaningful way can be challenging. This session will highlight what makes a good community partner, how to use social media to attract and maintain community partner relationships, and what information you should share with community partners.
