About this grant
This grant will support the Communities Foundation of Oklahoma, which coordinates the Oklahoma Statewide Afterschool Network. In addition to continuing the network’s core work to advance afterschool in Oklahoma, it will complete a multiyear project to build an afterschool system of career and college readiness to develop students’ workforce skills and expose them to emerging career opportunities, particularly in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. The network seeks to leverage the resources of public and private partners to increase the potential of career success of Oklahoma’s children and strengthen the state’s economic competitiveness.
