About this grant

This grant to the Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence will support the development of the Arizona 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) sponsoring a statewide mayoral summit; 2) cultivating new relationships with potential philanthropic partners to support the afterschool field; and 3) creating new training materials on the Arizona quality standards and the self-assessment tool.
