About this grant
This grant will support the Alaska Children’s Trust to coordinate a statewide afterschool network in Alaska. Over the next three years, the Alaska Statewide Afterschool Network will build a statewide coalition in support of afterschool programs, and coordinate a unified vision to inform policy and quality afterschool initiatives. During this grant, the network’s initiatives and priorities will include: 1) establishing the network as the convener for afterschool programming in the state of Alaska; 2) developing policies and securing resources to support school-based/school-linked afterschool programs; and 3) establishing standards to increase the number of high quality afterschool programs in Alaska.
