About this grant

This grant to the Massachusetts Afterschool Partnership will enable the Massachusetts Statewide Afterschool Network to build new ecosystems and partnerships to advance high-quality entrepreneurship opportunities in afterschool and summer learning programs. This grant will support the network to: 1) develop entrepreneurship training and curriculum to engage older youth in afterschool settings; 2) grow and promote an ecosystem for public schools to include entrepreneurship in afterschool settings; and 3) engage new and existing partners throughout the state. The grantee will share lessons learned with other state networks to enhance youth entrepreneurship initiatives in afterschool programs.
