About this grant
This grant will support the Public School Forum of North Carolina which coordinates the North Carolina Statewide Afterschool Network. The North Carolina Statewide Afterschool Network will focus on building capacity for long-term success and advancing systems change for afterschool and expanded learning in North Carolina. Over the next three years, the network will support the development of policy, partnerships, and funding to benefit youth in afterschool and expanded learning programs. The network’s specific initiatives will include: 1) developing a research and policy agenda focused on college and career readiness; 2) working with school administrators, superintendents, and principals to develop new school-linked afterschool policy; and 3) creating professional development trainings targeted at identified gap areas.
