About this grant

This grant to Vermont Afterschool will enable the Vermont Statewide Afterschool Network to increase the availability and expansion of financial education and college affordability planning by enhancing quality afterschool and summer learning opportunities for underserved youth. This project will support the network to 1) expand access to financial literacy programs at the elementary and middle school levels; 2) build financial literacy into Vermont Afterschool’s high school initiatives; and 3) develop a statewide communications plan to build awareness about the importance of afterschool. Vermont Afterschool will share promising practices and resources with the 50 state networks and the Mizzen by Mott App to enhance college and career readiness initiatives in afterschool programs nationally.
