About this grant
This grant will support the University of Kansas Center for Research, Inc., which coordinates the Kansas Statewide Afterschool Network to continue development of policy, partnerships, and funding to benefit youth in afterschool programs. The network’s specific initiatives will include: 1) convening a municipal summit to develop mayoral champions and local initiatives in support of out-of-school time programming; 2) developing a comprehensive plan to increase resources for out-of-school time programs; and 3) developing a statewide system of evaluation for out-of-school time that includes self-assessment, continuous improvement strategies, and rigorous impact evaluation.
