Excel Beyond the Bell SA is having their annual summit next week on Wednesday, May 25. Out-of-school time encompasses after school and summer programming. Many of the challenges that students face in school actually have to do with their circumstances outside of school. Out-of-school time programs are critical for our youth to get their needs addressed in a way that schools are not designed to do.
