Communications & Marketing Intern - Idaho Out-of-School Network


The Idaho Out-of-School Network’s mission is to ensure Idaho’s youth have access to high quality out-of-school (OST) programs. The research on OST programs reveals that youth consistently enrolled in quality programs perform better academically, have better school attendance, adapt better socially, and are more likely to graduate from high school and go-on to higher learning. The Idaho Out-of-School Network is the only program of its kind in Idaho, though all 50 states have launched similar programs. The Idaho Out-of-School Network does not directly offer out-of-school programs; the focus is to advocate and promote the benefits of out-of-school programming, help connect families and youth to a program and support providers with resources and training to enrich and expand their programming and services.
