About this grant
This grant to the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit will support the development of the Pennsylvania 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 initiatives will include: 1) producing two data reports on the impact of out-of-school time programming in Pennsylvania; 2) developing strategies to increase the sustainability of the network; and 3) developing quality standards for afterschool programs.
