About this grant

This grant to the University of Missouri-Columbia will enable the Missouri Statewide Afterschool Network to increase the number of middle and high school 21st Century Community Learning Centers programs offering quality college and career readiness programming to low-income youth. This project will support the network to: 1) identify local and state initiatives, organizations and other entities that support college and career readiness; 2) increase the resources, supports, and professional development available to afterschool professionals; and 3) assist key partner organizations to expand their projects to include afterschool as a strategy for college and career readiness. The grantee will share lessons learned with other state networks to enhance college and career readiness initiatives in afterschool programs.
