By Do What U Luv Foundation
for School Partners
School admin, staff, and PAC
The "Afterschool Guide" (by DWUL Foundation) and "Do What U Luv (DWUL.io) Online Platform" has an MOU with SD43 as of Dec. 2021.
Since we started working with the SD43 Community Connections team in 2014, together with our program provider partners, we have helped SD43 schools access 500+ programs directly at their school for 25+ school communities serving over 5,000 families.
We provide school communities with an "Afterschool Guide" service (a registered charity) to help SD43 school admins, PAC, and teachers to access "vetted" afterschool programs and bring them to schools between 3-5 pm.
We helped start (now partner) a simple online platform (Do What U Luv - DWUL.io) for families to easily find and register for programs and for program providers to list their programs and get registration.

What can Schools Access?
A network of vetted community programs to be offered in-school during the afterschool time 3-5 pm at discounted/subsidized rate.
We help school communities find, plan, and book programs, camps, and services, to support families, children and youth while reducing paperwork and improving efficiency for everyone.
We use the DWUL platform to support program listing, registration, payment, and reports for schools and providers. Reduce paperwork and increase efficiency.
(Optional) Schools can get an "SD43 school provider account" to access a simple online registration system for any staff and parent who collects registration and payments for activities.
$0 monthly fee, 6% + 30¢ per registration. There is no fee for free programs.
How are 'Program Partners' vetted?
Program providers must submit a partnership application with Afterschool Guide and SD43 Community Connections Partnership.
Not all program providers are eligible to become a DWUL-SD43 vetted afterschool program provider.
All providers and instructors must have valid criminal record checks recent up to three years.
All providers must have liability insurance coverage or become "additional insured" under DWUL's policies.
Programs must adopt a "community inclusion" strategy to support the vulnerable families - Usually, once a program reaches the minimum registration to start (10-15 based on the program), they can offer 10% of the spots to vulnerable families with barriers.
