About this grant
This grant will continue to support the Minnesota Department of Education in the coordination of the Minnesota Statewide Afterschool Network, a coalition of public and private organizations dedicated to ensuring beneficial options for youth to learn, develop, and contribute during nonschool hours. In addition to continuing the network’s core work to advance afterschool in Minnesota, it will design and implement a comprehensive strategy intended to secure additional resources for afterschool programs. The network will also implement a statewide community learning initiative to increase the collaboration between schools and afterschool programs, and to provide new learning opportunities for native youth in Minnesota. To ensure that new models and best practices are incorporated nationally, the network will share lessons learned and products with other state networks.
