Many of you are aware of OregonASK (http://www.oregonask.org/), the statewide network for afterschool providers.  OregonASK is off the ground and running, implementing projects through partnerships with afterschool organizations.  For example, about a dozen public librarians participated as presenters in OregonASK's positive youth development training.  And, OregonASK has also partnered with State Library staff to adapt the Afterwords curriculum and conduct a training of trainers. Trainers will be be presenting Afterwards to 21st Century Community Learning Center staff throughout Oregon.

In addition to participating in projects like those I just mentioned, you can support OregonASK and your local afterschool providers by promoting other OregonASK projects.  For example, last Spring many of you promoted Operation Purple, a free camp for children of military personnel.  Attached is a flyer for another opportunity, FREE Military Family Admission Day at JJ Jump in Clackamas and Vancouver on Dec 29th 2008.  I was unable to copy and paste the flyer into the body of this email, and most of you know that attachments often don't work when sent via a listserv so please email me if you would like me to send it to you.  Below are the details.

If you have questions or want more information about this project contact Alexis DeLeon (alexis.deleon at us.army.mil). If you have questions or want more information about OregonASK you can contact me (katie.anderson at state.or.us).

Thank you,
