Education Liaisons

An Increased Investment in Education and Connecting Schools and Families 

Education Liaisons are in regular communication with teachers, families, and Club staff, to ensure that each student stays on track.

As a well-established, high-quality afterschool program, we have always known the significant role our Clubs play in bridging the gap between the classroom and home. The pandemic has made it even more clear, however, that the adults in a kid’s life need to be connected in order to best support their learning and overall success in school.

In response to the many adverse effects of the pandemic on youth, we have made significant investments in education and mental health services. To support our Club members, we have increased the size of our education team, adding Education Liaisons to work alongside our Education Directors.
Education Liaisons
Each of our Clubhouses now has an Educational Liaison who is in regular communication with teachers, families, and Club staff, to ensure that the adults are working together to help youth succeed academically. When problems arise, they are there to intervene, facilitate communication, deploy resources, and solve problems. Education Directors remain critically important at the Clubhouse, holding the responsibility for running great Learning Centers.
Education Liaisons contribute to BGCSF’s commitment to providing a comprehensive support  system for members by: 
  • Facilitating communication between the Club, family, and school to understand a kid’s needs.
  • Looking across the entire Clubhouse, not just the Learning Center, to assess how Club staff are helping youth to achieve academically and be better connected to their school.  
  • Gathering and managing qualitative and quantitative data to build an understanding of the academic and SEL needs of members.
  • Coordinating academic programs and other Club resources to meet the identified academic and SEL needs of youth. 
  • Collaborating with external academic partners to provide resources and opportunities for Club members.
  • Support all Club staff through coaching and feedback.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
