About this grant
This grant to Save the Children will support the development of the Kentucky 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 include: 1) develop a communications plan to raise awareness of the network and out-of-school time programs in Kentucky; 2) develop a new financing plan to increase support for the network; and 3) host regional Afterschool Super-Summits to provide training for out-of-school time professionals.
