About this grant

This grant will allow the Afterschool Alliance to continue deploying AmeriCorps VISTA members as a critical asset to the growth and sustainability of statewide afterschool networks. Dedicated to the efforts of improving the afterschool networks and programs who serve underserved communities and families, Alliance VISTAs have been instrumental in maintaining and expanding the necessary facets of quality programming for young people. This grant will support 25 VISTAs in networks to address the following: combating childhood hunger and nutrition through adoption of meals programs; introduce and expand quality STEM learning; increasing access to high quality educational programming for young people of color; and support afterschool programs and staff in response to the substance misuse crisis.
