WYAA + NAA = A Powerful Collaboration for Out of School Time

WYAA is the NAA State Affiliate

The Wyoming Afterschool Alliance is Wyoming’s official National AfterSchool Association Affiliate.  

The strong and supportive relationships between NAA and its State Affiliates create a national network that builds connectivity among stakeholders and creates opportunities for engagement that ensure a vibrant future for the Out-of-School Time (OST) field.  

WYAA and NAA are committed to fostering environments where all children can thrive beyond the school day. Our partnership amplifies our shared mission in several key ways: 

  • Quality Programs: We are dedicated to promoting high standards in afterschool programming. NAA’s resources and professional development opportunities help us support Wyoming programs in delivering exceptional services. 
  • Access: Together, we work to ensure that every child has access to enriching, safe, and affordable afterschool programs.  
  • Support for Afterschool Professionals: By investing in the professional growth of afterschool educators, we are enhancing the quality of interactions and experiences young people have during the 80% of time when they’re not in school.  

NAA is dedicated to advancing the afterschool profession and enhancing the quality of afterschool programs across the United States. As the NAA Affiliate for Wyoming, we are aligned with an organization that shares our vision for high-quality, accessible afterschool programs that support the holistic development of children and youth.
