About this grant

This grant will support the United Ways of Tennessee which coordinates the Tennessee Statewide Afterschool Network to continue development of policy, partnerships, and funding to benefit youth in afterschool programs. The network’s specific initiatives will include: 1) developing an educational systems task force to make more intentional linkages to educational system partners and develop school-based and school-linked afterschool programming; 2) developing a comprehensive plan to increase resources for afterschool programs; and 3) updating Tennessee’s School Age Development Standards and creating a training module to ensure effective implementation.
