About this grant

This grant to AfterSchool Works! New York will enable the New York State Network for Youth Success, to increase the availability of high quality afterschool programs, summer learning, and community schools in New York. Through this grant, the network will focus on increasing public awareness of the importance of afterschool programs in New York by: 1) implementing a media campaign to raise awareness, highlight existing research, and engage new stakeholders; 2) holding annual summits to engage new partners across afterschool, summer, and community school constituencies; and 3) enhancing the existing statewide data system to improve access to consistent afterschool and summer program data. The network will share lessons learned with other state networks to increase the capacity of afterschool programs in other states to prepare youth for the workforce.
