About this grant
This grant to the Foundation for California Community Colleges will support the development of the California Statewide Afterschool Network to continue to build an afterschool and summer learning system that improves outcomes for children and youth through school-based or school-linked afterschool programs. Over the next three years, the network will support the development of policy, partnerships, and funding to benefit youth in afterschool programs. The network’s specific initiatives will include: 1) establishing a work group on K-12 partnerships connected to the California Department of Education-After School Division; 2) connecting the afterschool field to funding opportunities to sustain and expand programs; and 3) engaging the Regional Technical Assistance Providers to implement a process of continuous quality improvement for afterschool programs.
