About this grant

This grant will enable the Collaborative Communications Group (CCG) to provide conference and logistical support for two 2006 convenings that will build connections among practitioners, advocates, researchers, policymakers and state education agency representatives to further the quality and sustainability of afterschool programs and school/community partnerships. The first meeting will bring together Mott afterschool grantees to encourage sharing, collaboration and networking opportunities. The second meeting will convene state education agency representatives administering the 21st Century Community Learning Centers and Supplemental Educational Services programs to further strategies for implementing effective afterschool programs. The latter meeting will be held in partnership with the U.S. Department of Education and the Council of Chief State School Officers.CCG is a team of professionals who use innovative communications strategies, products and technologies to bring people together for the improvement of organizations, schools and communities.
