2019-2020 NMOST Leadership Institute

The long-term goal of the OST Leadership Institute is to increase the number of children and youth participating in afterschool and summer learning. Through continued engagement with the NMOST network and staff, 2019 OST-LI alums will continue to expand and develop programing, which in turn will translate into better recruitment efforts and more children and youth having access to high quality OST programs throughout the state of New Mexico.


The 2019-2020 Institute consisted of three in-person sessionstrainings taking place over the course of five months. 


Eight (8) New Mexico counties were represented by our 2019-2020 OST-LI Cohort. The 16 participants represented Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Las Cruces, Las Vegas, Ruidoso, Farmington, Lovington, Zuni Pueblo, Newcomb, and Cedar Crest (Appendix B). 50% of the OST-LI participants are serving rural geographic areas and the other 50% are within the Rio Grande corridor with urban centers. Nearly 75% of the OST-LI participants are working in underserved communities and two participants are working directly in and with tribal communities. Along with coming with diverse skill sets and an eagerness to learn, the 16 participants who successfully completed the Institute came from backgrounds including, school teachers, administrators, program managers, directors of youth centers, small OST business owners, and library employees
