About this grant

This grant will allow the Afterschool Alliance to increase the quality of afterschool programs through the network-building efforts of AmeriCorps VISTA members skilled in the issues relevant for children and families attending afterschool programs. The VISTA members will work to: 1) enhance the capacity of statewide afterschool networks; 2) increase implementation of the afterschool meals programs; 3) support STEM learning opportunities within the afterschool field; and 4) increase access to high quality education, enrichment, and mentoring opportunities for young men of color as part of the My Brother’s Keeper initiative.
