About this grant

This grant to the Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence will enable the Arizona Statewide Afterschool Network to expand access to opportunities for high school youth to experience entrepreneurship in afterschool programs. This project will support the network to: 1) develop a summer entrepreneurship program for high school students; 2) enhance entrepreneurship curriculum to include soft skills and align with state quality standards; and 3) develop high school pitch competitions. The grantee will share lessons learned with other state networks to enhance youth entrepreneurship initiatives in afterschool programs.
