As champions for children, you are doing everything you can during this time to keep youth safe and continue to serve them. We also know you are doing all you can to support your staff. You have risen to the challenge in every way. In support of your efforts, Pennsylvania Statewide Afterschool Youth Development Network (PSAYDN) at Center for Schools and Communities has a new resource to share with you.
Mizzen by Mott is a new app built with and for afterschool professionals to provide high quality, engaging learning content to the afterschool field.
To meet the needs of this moment, the Mizzen team has added new activity playlists and multi-week modules that can be done at home or in small-group settings. The app’s content focuses on youth learning and well-being and is provided by organizations like Jazz at Lincoln Center, the California Academy of Sciences, After-School All-Stars, OregonAsk, and VentureLab. Through support from the Mott Foundation, the app and all of its content are available for free to afterschool providers.
Let us know how this works for you and what other kinds of content you may find helpful as we head into summer. We will be sure to pass along what we hear directly to the app team.
PSAYDN is one of 50 statewide afterschool networks funded by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. PSAYDN is an initiative of Center for Schools and Communities.
