Building Capacity of Leaders of Color (BCLC) Initiative

Afterschool programs across the country serve children and youth from diverse backgrounds. While staff who work directly with young people tend to be representative of the populations they serve, a racial leadership gap persists. Through this initiative and with the generous support of the S.D Bechtel Jr. Foundation, NAA seeks to help address this racial leadership gap and advance equity in the afterschool field. Elevating this topic so that the afterschool field can more intentionally and effectively create a leadership pipeline for people of color is critical and is a key element in ensuring that the afterschool workforce can best meet the needs of the young people it serves.

Use this comprehensive toolkit to support Leaders of Color within your own organizations and programs.
