About this grant

This grant will support the National Council of La Raza in integrating their affiliate afterschool practitioners into a network that will address the needs and challenges of Latino children in afterschool programs. The network will be composed of current affiliates that offer afterschool programs and will: a) be an important medium of communication among Latino-serving afterschool affiliates; b) build a strong bloc of advocates for Latino needs at the local and national level in afterschool settings; and c) provide members constant access to information on best practices and changing needs in the afterschool field.
