BLOCS (Building Louisville’s Out-of-School Time Coordinated System) is a community partnership — founded by Metro United Way, Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS), and Louisville Metro Government — that connects youth to programs, connects programs to one another, identifies gaps in service, works to build system-wide quality through community trainings, provides professional opportunities for youth workers, and measures the program quality.
COVID School Year Program Toolkit
As we gear up for the 20-21 program year, many questions have arisen about providing virtual and in-person programming. While this document is from Denver, it is possibly the most comprehensive document currently available outlining every aspect of re-opening in-person programming, editable forms for sites, technology platforms, mental health suggestions, and staying engaged with students in a pandemic. Feel free to use it as a guide to build quality programming during this time.
