This project will support the network to: 1) build a network of partners in the state focused on college and career readiness; 2) convene partners, stakeholders, and students to design, pilot, and scale college and career readiness programming; and 3) incorporate children’s savings accounts and financial literacy training into the programming. The grantee will share lessons learned with other state networks to enhance college and career readiness initiatives in afterschool programs.
