About this grant

This grant to Explora will enable the New Mexico Statewide Afterschool Network to increase the quality of programs developed and implemented in underserved areas of New Mexico. This project will: 1) provide high-quality professional development opportunities for out-of-school time leaders in underserved communities; 2) improve access and quality of out-of-school time programs across New Mexico; and 3) increase the number of quality out-of-school time programs funded and sustained in areas not currently receiving funding. The grantee will share lessons learned with other state networks to enhance quality programs for underserved youth.
