About this grant

This grant to the South Carolina Afterschool Alliance will enable the South Carolina Statewide Afterschool Network to incorporate entrepreneurship into the South Carolina College and Career Digital Badges initiative to further expand learning opportunities for high school students. This grant will support the network to: 1) develop entrepreneurship curriculum and lesson plans; 2) host a youth summit on entrepreneurship; and 3) provide research and data on the benefits of afterschool and youth entrepreneurship. The grantee will share lessons learned with other state networks to enhance youth entrepreneurship initiatives in afterschool programs.
