About this grant

This grant will support the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory in its efforts to ensure broad access among afterschool providers to resources and training that foster the implementation of effective academic enrichment practices. This project will support:1) the development and dissemination of print-based professional development resources that will help afterschool staff integrate academic learning opportunities into their programs; and 2) a series of training events for members of the Mott-funded statewide afterschool networks and others who provide guidance and assistance to afterschool programs. These activities will ensure broad awareness and utilization of research-based practices that can positively impact the academic engagement and performance of afterschool participants.
