The 50 State Afterschool Network

For more than a decade, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation has made investments in networks of diverse group of organizations and champions to come together to build public will and systems for afterschool and summer learning. Now reaching every state, the 50 State Afterschool Network fosters partnerships and policies to develop, support, and sustain high-quality opportunities for children and youth.

Across the nation, afterschool and summer programs equip millions of children to succeed in school, connect with their communities, and prepare them for productive futures. The networks serve as a driving force, bringing stakeholders together and sharing best practices to ensure affordable, sustainable afterschool and summer learning programs are available.
