About this grant

This grant will support the West Virginia University Research Corporation in its efforts to develop the West Virginia statewide afterschool network. The network will support and sustain a statewide partnership to raise awareness of the importance and accessibility of afterschool programs, share criteria related to best practices, and promote sustainability of afterschool programs. The West Virginia network plans to address public policy and infrastructure development while working to broaden the definition of learning. Because of the network’s activities, stakeholders will be better able to articulate the role that afterschool programs can play in meeting the developmental needs of young people. This grantee is part of the fifth cohort of Mott-funded statewide afterschool networks.
