About this grant
This grant will support the Public School Forum of North Carolina to coordinate the North Carolina Statewide Afterschool Network. In addition to continuing the network’s core work to advance afterschool in North Carolina, it will complete a multiyear project to create a public awareness campaign and continue to build a comprehensive afterschool professional development system. The network seeks to develop policy to sustain existing afterschool programs and to reinstate lost afterschool funding streams. To ensure that new models and best practices are incorporated nationally, the network will share lessons learned and products with other statewide afterschool networks.
