About this grant

This grant to Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit will enable the Pennsylvania Statewide Afterschool Network to establish Out-of-School Time Innovation Hubs throughout the state to provide greater access to entrepreneurial programs, STEM activities, and career-readiness models. This project will: 1) launch entrepreneurial and STEM programming and expand out-of-school time career pathway models; 2) design and implement professional development and trainings; and 3) reorganize and build the local and regional capacity of out-of-school time organizations. The grantee will share lessons learned with other state networks to enhance youth entrepreneurial initiatives in out-of-school time programs.
