The NC Center for Afterschool Programs (NC CAP) Policy & Practice Regional Convenings offer out-of-school time providers, elected officials, educators and higher education and community stakeholders opportunities to engage in meaningful dialogue pertaining to the Roadmap of Need. The annual Roadmap of Need uses data on economic development, education, health and youth behavior & safety to take a whole child needs assessment of what youth living in each of North Carolina’s 100 counties must have in order to thrive in school and in life. In addition to dialogue centered on the recently released Roadmap, attendees are afforded an opportunity to explore a range of enrichment activities presented by partnering organizations that can be utilized in programs.
