About this grant
This grant to Nebraska Children and Families Foundation will support the Nebraska 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 quality initiatives to benefit youth in afterschool programs. The network’s specific projects will: 1) expand and enhance Nebraska’s statewide coalition of citywide expanded learning opportunity systems; 2) develop new career and technical education afterschool programming; and 3) coordinate and support the expansion of a statewide professional development system and coaching opportunities across Nebraska.
