About this grant

This grant to the Oregon Association for the Education of Young Children will enable the Oregon Statewide Afterschool Network to expand quality programs through a state effort known as TEAM Community: Total Engagement Across My Community. The goal of this project is to focus on the availability of high quality programs that provide meaningful family and community engagement and ensure equity and access to afterschool programs for all students in Oregon. This grant will: 1) conduct research and data collection on issues of equity; 2) expand the integration of service-learning; and 3) create a public awareness campaign around issues of equity and access. The grantee will share lessons learned with other state networks in strengthening an existing afterschool system to enhance quality and access for high need students.
