About this grant
This grant will support the United Ways of Texas to coordinate the new Texas Statewide Afterschool Network in Texas. The network will work to create an afterschool system, and as a new network, will work to increase high quality afterschool opportunities in the state. The network will bring together youth-serving organizations, state agencies, and other key stakeholders, and will complete a statewide mapping study of afterschool services and needs. To ensure that new models and best practices are incorporated nationally, the network will share lessons learned and products with the other statewide afterschool networks.
