About this grant

This grant will support the Family & Workplace Connection in its efforts to develop the Delaware Statewide Afterschool Network, a network formally created in 2005 that endorses the goal of all school-age children to be academically, socially, culturally and physically healthy. The network, along with its partners, will work to: create a long-term policy voice for afterschool programs; advocate for policies that support high quality programs; support the afterschool workforce; increase public awareness regarding afterschool programs; build bridges between public schools and community-based organizations; and support family-centered practices. This grantee is part of the fifth cohort of Mott-funded statewide afterschool networks.
