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 inform afterschool and expanded learning policy and practice with lessons learned from high performing education systems in other countries, and as a result, to realize a new definition of student success in the 21st century. This project will include international research, work with the statewide afterschool networks and the grantee’s Global Cities Education Network, and the development of recommendations of international best practices to align school-day curriculum and afterschool experiential learning to help youth achieve global competence.
