The School Age Child Care (SAC) project provides targeted technical assistance and professional development to school age providers. SAC professional development focuses on the unique environments where school age programs operate as well as the learning needs of older children. SAC technical assistance helps sites implement the concepts learned in professional development and supports staff advancement in the field of out-of-school time and school age care.

Do you wonder how to make the most of your shared space at an elementary school or church facility?

Do you feel like your before and after school children are an “afterthought” at your program?
