About this grant
This grant will support the Michigan Association of United Ways which coordinates the Michigan Statewide Afterschool Network. In addition to continuing the network’s core work to advance afterschool in Michigan, it will complete a multiyear project connecting afterschool and the broader education movement and increasing science, technology, engineering, and math awareness. The network seeks to deepen the connection between afterschool and the broader education movement by linking afterschool and summer learning opportunities to education policy. To ensure that new models and best practices are incorporated nationally, the network will share lessons learned and products with other state networks.
