In the fall of 2017, eight members of the BOOST Network, alongside an independent consultant-Dave Shavel, came together for a five month period to identify ways the Network could increase and enhance the delivery of OST programming in the region. This Action Team was tasked with the following:

  • Assess the BOOST Network’s membership to identify ways to support and enhance OST programming;

  • Develop a set of recommendations and action steps to be implemented by the BOOST Network leadership
