About this grant
This grant to Louisiana Tech University will support the Louisiana Statewide Afterschool Network to continue to build an afterschool and summer learning system that improves outcomes for children and youth through school-based or school-linked afterschool programs. Over the next three years, the network will support the development of policy, partnerships, and funding to benefit youth in afterschool programs. The network’s specific initiatives will: 1) leverage partnerships with key stakeholders and state agencies to increase coordination and support for afterschool programs; 2) increase the capacity of the network to provide quality training for afterschool programs in the state; and 3) host regional summits on quality afterschool practices and provide professional development for afterschool staff.
