About this grant

This grant will support Education’s Next Horizon in its efforts to develop the Louisiana Statewide Afterschool Network. The network seeks to develop a strategy for the long-term sustainability of afterschool programs and the network. First steps include convening policymakers, afterschool providers, youth and families, businesses, school districts, regional funders, state agencies, and youth advocates to formalize a structure and decisionmaking process for the network. The network will also map the landscape of afterschool programs in Louisiana and conduct a statewide needs assessment for training and professional development. Lessons learned and products will be shared with the national network of statewide afterschool networks.
