About this grant

This grant to the Fund for Educational Excellence will support the Maryland Statewide Afterschool Network to continue to build an afterschool and summer learning system that improves outcomes for children and youth through school-based or school-linked afterschool programs. Over the next three years, the network will support the development of policy, partnerships, and funding to benefit youth in afterschool programs. The network’s specific initiatives will: 1) develop a communications plan to help build on the success of Maryland Youth at 3PM and increase awareness of the need for afterschool programs in Maryland; 2) develop a plan to diversify funding sources for the network; and 3) provide training, resources, and mentoring to afterschool programs.
