Southwest Airlines has partnered with PASA as its official airline sponsor for a second year. Last year, Southwest flew PASA staff to national conferences, trainings, and other professional development opportunities. Thanks to their support, we were able to send more staff than ever to participate national conferences and speaking engagements, like the National Summer Learning Association’s conference in Orlando, FL, where Naomi Jacobs, AfterZone Summer Scholars Manager, presented for the first time on PASA’s quality improvement system.
Not only does Southwest’s partnership help PASA grow our staff by affording them more opportunities to deepen their knowledge and engage with other industry professionals, it also ensures PASA remains a leader in national conversations around afterschool and expanded learning, while helping us spend more on programming and less on travel.
PASA and Southwest share a dedication to a thriving Providence community and we’re excited to work together for a second year.
