About this grant

This grant will support the Virginia Child Care Resource and Referral Network which coordinates the Virginia Statewide Afterschool Network. In addition to continuing the network’s core work to advance afterschool in Virginia, the network will work to increase the availability of high quality afterschool programs through developing and implementing new afterschool program standards and an afterschool quality model. The grantee will also pilot new afterschool programs to increase youth access to learning opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math. To ensure that new models and best practices are incorporated nationally, the network will share lessons learned and products with other state networks.
