In mid-2017, NMOST received a $10,000 grant from the National Conference of State Legislators. We worked closely with Share NM, the New Mexico Community Data Collaborative (NMCDC), and the New Mexico Department of Health to create a Data to Action Team, chartered with mapping existing OST programs and needs in New Mexico, obtaining information on program successes and challenges, and disseminating the resulting data to local and state level audiences. Out of that effort, we've created a number of infographics, and a Story Map showing the location of State and Federally funded programs in the context of critical indicators like poverty, child abuse, and juvenile justice referrals.
The output from this project has been used in advocating for OST programs and funding and has been presented at multiple events. NMOST received national attention for the mapping project when the Afterschool Alliance published a guest blog by our Executive Director, May Sagbakken.
