This event featured a Keynote address regarding The True Foundation for Virginia's  Future Economic Growth: Time to Put Kids First in Virginia featuring Gary McCollum, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Cox Communications.  A National Perspective was presented by Bela Shah Spooner from National League of Cities, and Lucas Held from the Wallace Foundation. Panel discussions from a local perspective on Out-of-School Time Availability and Accessibility, Workforce Development, Drop-Out Prevention, System Building/Partnerships, Youth Delinquency and Gang Activity, and Behavioral Health Issues presented both challenges and solutions facing the out-of-school field. An opportunity for focused conversations within local teams to generate ideas, action plans, and next steps was provided during lunch. The Virginia School Age Child Care Association sponsored the lunch. The ultimate goal of the event was not only to create local champions for Engaging Youth, Strengthening Families, and Transforming Communities, but also to build public will and practical structures to support youth access to quality Out-of-School Time Programs in communities statewide.
