About this grant

This grant to Vermont Afterschool will enable the Vermont Statewide Afterschool Network to launch, support, and implement the Change the Story: Youth in Afterschool project. This project will: 1) create a statewide afterschool youth council; 2) provide training and support to afterschool programs interested in elevating youth voice; and 3) develop and implement a statewide strategic communications campaign to support the need for afterschool and youth voice in Vermont. The grantee will share lessons learned with other state networks to enhance youth voice in afterschool programs.
