April 22, 2020 will mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the largest civic-focused day of action in the world. For Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary, engage your students in a variety of fun, educational and impactful learning opportunities! As afterschool programs, you are unique in your ability to reach and shape future leaders outside of the classroom. Earth Day Network has resources to support you as you host events that can foster discussion and design activities to help students understand and address environmental issues.
For example, hold citizen science data collection events that encourage your students to learn about environmental issues and connect them with lessons from school. Organize environmental-themed craft projects that allow them to channel their creativity or host cooking workshops where they can make sustainable recipes. Explore what species are local to your community and think of ways your students can help protect them. For more information about Earth Day and resources on things you can do, check out the Earth Day Network website.

The Child and Youth Program (CYP) is an integral component of the National Guards comprehensive approach to Family Readiness. By upholding the well-being of the entire family, the CYP offers outcome based activities designed to foster positive youth development and support the unique strengths and challenges of National Guard children. This high quality, out-of-school time program exists in 54 States, Territories and the District of Columbia to mitigate risky behaviors, enhance resilience, develop positive coping strategies, and assist our National Guard youth in reaching their full potential as the next generation of leaders.
The Idaho Out-of-School Network’s (ION) mission is to ensure Idaho’s youth have access to high quality out-of-school (OST) programs.
The research on OST programs reveals that youth consistently enrolled in quality programs perform better academically, have better school attendance, adapt better socially, are more likely to graduate from high school and go-on to higher learning. Research also reveals that they are less likely to engage in unhealthy behaviors that may lead to crime, substance abuse or teen parenthood. New studies are showing too that OST programs are helping close the achievement gap of students across income levels. ION is the only program of its kind in Idaho, though all 50 states have launched similar programs.
ION does not directly offer out-of-school programs; the focus is to advocate and promote the benefits of out-of-school programming, help connect families and youth to a program and support providers with resources and training to enrich and expand their programming and services.
