School’s Out Washington’s very own David Beard will be joining fourteen other leaders of the afterschool and expanded learning field as White-Riley-Peterson Policy Fellows, a partnership between the Riley Institute at Furman University and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.

Through discussion of actual case studies led by policy change-makers, the Fellowship equips graduates with a real world understanding of the art and science of sound policy-making for afterschool and expanded learning. In the 10-month program, which begins in October, Fellows will study afterschool/expanded learning policy and develop and implement state-level policy projects in partnership with their Statewide Afterschool Networks and the national Afterschool Alliance.

For the children and youth of Washington state, this means David will learn from some of the best minds in expanded learning nationwide, allowing him to be an even better advocate for strong afterschool and summer learning in our state.

David will be joining these other leaders over the next year:
