WHAT: Rochester’s after-school programs are getting a closer look, as city leaders attend a “lunch and learn” presentation at Nazareth College with Sally Csontos, a nationally known after-school expert. The event is being hosted by the College of Arts and Science’s Minor in Community Youth Development along with the Rochester Area Community Foundation. Csontos will speak about program quality enhancement methods in after-school/out-of-school activities. The event is invitation only, but limited opportunities are available for Nazareth College students and faculty. Many local after-school/out-of-school policy makers will attend such as City of Rochester Councilpersons Lovely Warren and Loretta Scott, along with the commissioner of Recreation and Youth Services Luis Burgos and the Director of the Monroe County Youth Bureau Robert Zink.
Csontos has a background of proven success in leading government organizations and social service agencies at a local and national level. Currently as President of Csontos & Associates, she is spearheading the Chicago Out-of-School Time Project Program Improvement initiative funded by the Wallace Foundation. The goal is to build capacity and support for youth and teen program offerings and enhance program delivery and outcomes in Chicago, Illinois. She has a reputation for building successful, cooperative relationships and driving forward organizational change.
