Hello, my name is Mary Su. I am an advocate for all things after school care & education. I have worked with children since the age of 19 years old when I joined the after-school movement as a program leader in 2007. At first, working with children after school was just a paycheck for me. However, I quickly realized the impact and influence I have on young children. I began to build positive relationships with the youth in my program which made me feel rewarding inside. My passion for becoming a positive mentor helped me climb the leadership ladder in the organization I work for.
I am now a supervisor for youth development professionals in the after school setting. I strive to provide our youth with a safe, fun, and engaging experience in after-school programming. This blog will give anyone tips & tricks on building a successful after-school program.
