The In and Out-of-School Time Practice Group is interested in learning more about the following:
1) Are there Ecosystems discussing, problem solving, strategizing ways to increase the number of diverse formal educators?
2) Are there Ecosystems discussing, problem solving, strategizing ways to build the capacity of out of school educators and create a pipeline to being formal educators? Are there initiatives and models out there?
3) Have there been policy shifts at the local or state level to build a pipeline of more diverse teachers and do those policy include out of school time educators in the conversation?
If there are initiatives and models out there, we want to hear from you! Please email Sabrina at firstname.lastname@example.org

We have been working on these issues for quite a while. We are the backbone organization for a STEM Network and are housed at California State University East Bay, one of the largest producer of credentialed teachers in the Bay Area. We also have a project working with after school programs and have been working with them and our local community colleges to build pathways to a credential and classroom teaching. I would be happy t discuss this further with you on the phone or we could meet in person at the National STEM Ecosystem Meeting in November.
