UPCOMING BOOST NETWORK EVENTSQuarterly Meeting - March 7, 2017 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM Location: TBA
The BOOST Network supports collaboration coordination and communication among OST program providers, other youth service agencies and community stakeholders across the Paso del Norte region.
Since the BOOST Network was launched in December 2015, cross-sector representatives have:
- Identified potential focus areas for the Network
- Endorsed a vision statement for the Network
- Selected and defined the Network's Core Values
The BOOST Network aims to create a cooperative community that supports quality out-of-school time experiences where children and youth thrive.
CORE VALUES STATEMENTS
The BOOST Network welcomes, respects and accepts individuals and organizations without biases based on differences of any kind. We also believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to collectively and more effectively serve all youth in our region.
While valuing the traditions of its partners, the BOOST Network inspires new ideas and creative thinking to help our youth succeed.
The BOOST Network is committed to utilizing a coordinated approach to enhance and further our vision while maintaining a focus on our mission.
The BOOST Time Network ensures results by creating a culture of excellence in an out-of-school time system that builds mutually beneficial relationships among stakeholders.
WHAT ARE OST PROGRAMS
OST programs offer quality enrichment opportunities for school-aged youth through structured sets of activities implemented outside regular school hours, on weekends, or during summer and holiday breaks. Youth participating in OST programs thrive in safe, structured and supportive environments during the hours they are most likely to engage in a range of risky behaviors.
- OST programs can be delivered in school, faith and community-based settings and include examples such as afterschool programs, summer camps, and an array of leadership, sports and other recreational activities.
