About this grant
This grant to School’s Out Washington will support the development of the Washington 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 include: 1) creating a campaign to increase state investment in afterschool and summer learning; 2) implementing an outreach plan to engage providers, parents, youth, and other stakeholders from across the state; and 3) extending the state’s afterschool STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) pilot program to add an additional cohort each year.
