Building capacity. Promoting high-quality programming.

All 21st CCLC grantees in Ohio have free access to COSA services and resources. COSA works in every region of Ohio and is here to help you. 


Trainings, Seminars, & Workshops 

COSA hosts trainings, seminars, and workshops across Ohio to share best practices, provide updates on current trends, and to strengthen OST programs. These events cover everything from recruiting students to family engagement, and from youth voice to summer learning loss.
