About this grant
This grant to the Utah Afterschool Network will enable the Utah Statewide Afterschool Network to create an afterschool and summer youth entrepreneurship initiative aimed at impacting high school students. This grant will support the network to: 1) provide mini-grants to afterschool and summer learning programs to increase entrepreneurial opportunities; 2) facilitate an entrepreneurial leadership academy for both in school and out of school leaders; and 3) educate key stakeholders on the importance of afterschool and entrepreneurship. The grantee will share lessons learned with other state networks to enhance youth entrepreneurship initiatives in afterschool programs.
