About this grant

This grant will support the National Conference of State Legislatures in its work to educate state legislators about the benefits of quality afterschool programs and to build capacity to implement comprehensive afterschool and summer learning opportunities. Specifically, the grantee will: 1) convene an afterschool boot camp for legislators focused on education and supports for young people, particularly as they recover from the pandemic; 2) conduct ongoing activities to educate legislators on the role of afterschool and summer learning programs in future education systems; and 3) work with the Mott Foundation to support future planning efforts to benefit the afterschool sector and the young people it serves.
