About this grant
This grant will provide support to the American Youth Policy Forum to organize a series of forums, Webinars, and discussion groups to educate key stakeholders on the important role afterschool and expanded learning opportunities play in preparing youth for college and careers. The educational opportunities will inform key stakeholders on: 1) the essential characteristics and elements of successful afterschool programs, including school-community partnerships; 2) how afterschool and expanded learning can help advance efforts to provide competency-based learning to students; and 3) how various education and youth funding streams can be leveraged to support afterschool and out-of-school time learning.
