Join us for our 30th
fireside chat. In this chat, Heather Williams from the
California AfterSchool Network is joined by Michael Funk from the
Expanded Learning Division of the California Department of
Education and Anthony Urias, Site Coordinator, and Brad Lupien,
President & CEO from arc.
In this chat, we discuss key updates on the education budget,
which has now passed out of the Assembly and Senate Subcommittees
Finance committees, and how they impact our Expanded Learning
Programs, including an increase to the ASES and 21st CCLC Daily

support our youth, families, and communities. We also recognize
that there is still the need to ensure these dollars are
structured in such a way to truly leverage the investment and
support our staff and all of our youth, including middle and high

California’s Afterschool Programs.
