The 
Leadership in Action Cohort series represents a compilation of face-to-face, online, and self- directed learning experiences designed to ensure that Out-of-School Time (OST) professionals are equipped with the necessary skills to lead effective programs and to advocate effectively for the children and families they serve. In order to assist OST directors in meeting the multifaceted and dynamic responsibilities associated with their role, it is essential that they be provided with the skills and knowledge they need in order to maximize their effectiveness.
 
As a means to help OST directors increase their capacity within the OST field to create more responsive programming, policies, and services that reflect OST program best practices, Arkansas State University Childhood Services (ASU CHS) and the Arkansas Out of School Network (AOSN) have developed  a two year-long, multifaceted professional development and networking cohort project for OST  program directors and emerging leaders consisting of  participation in professional development opportunities as well as networking opportunities where OST administrators come together to discuss timely issues and challenges and explore real life strategies for solving such challenges.
