About this grant
This grant will continue to support the YWCA of Seattle-King County-Snohomish County in developing the Washington Statewide Afterschool Network. The network is working to provide direct support, training, information, and funding assistance to enable communities to provide positive afterschool activities for youth. This grantee is part of the second cohort of Mott-funded, statewide afterschool networks. This renewal grant continues to provide core support to the network, while also encouraging new ideas designed to align and integrate afterschool and education systems. In addition to continuing its work in building the field of afterschool in Washington, the network will engage a diverse set of community stakeholders to strengthen the role of afterschool programs in the health of young people. The network will share lessons learned and products with the national network of statewide afterschool networks.
