Advisory Committee Application

ASAPconnect’s Mission

After School Assistance Providers Connect (ASAPconnect) is a statewide technical assistance (TA) capacity building project, leveraged to provide strategic support to After School Education and Safety (ASES), 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC), and other after school programs in California.  ASAPconnect, a project of the Santa Clara County Office of Education, aims to build exemplary TA with the capacity to support the diverse needs of after school programs across the state.

Advisory Committee Charge

The ASAPconnect Advisory Committee is a geographically and professionally diverse group of individuals that will advise the staff to chart the course of ASAPconnect.

ASAPconnect is committed to working cooperatively with others and to providing the after school TA community with relevant resources and services. ASAPconnect is also committed to not reinventing the wheel and to be an efficient and effective resource for the field. To ensure that these ideals are upheld, ASAPconnect’s Advisory Committee will serve in the following capacities:

  1. Programmatic feedback, advice, and accountability: As a representative of the TA community, Advisory Committee members will provide regular input on planned activities, offer suggestions for future initiatives, and ensure that the ASAPconnect remains focused and viable.
  2. Promotion and Advocacy: As an ambassador for ASAPconnect, Advisory Committee members will promote ASAPconnect and its resources and help identify and procure external support.
