About this grant

This renewal grant will continue to support Asia Society in its efforts to raise awareness, build capacity, and stimulate new opportunities to integrate global literacy into afterschool initiatives. The overall goals of the project are to increase the quality and quantity of global learning in afterschool programs and enable collaboration between schools, afterschool programs, and community organizations to realize a new definition of student success in the 21st century. Specifically, the grantee will work closely with leading statewide afterschool networks and experts to further develop tools, materials and training opportunities to add to the afterschool field. In addition, Asia Society’s International Studies Schools Network of secondary schools, afterschool experts, and national advisors will develop a planning process to align school-day curriculum and afterschool experiential learning to help youth achieve global competence.
