Mississippi Statewide Afterschool Network

The Mississippi Statewide Afterschool Network envisions a state where all children have access to high-quality, safe, and affordable programming that supports successful academic and positive social outcomes for students, parents, schools, and communities.

Current Projects and Initiatives: 

The Mississippi Statewide Afterschool Network's core values include:


  • Afterschool programs help children and families access the resources and relationships they need to thrive, which supports broader efforts to promote equity in communities across the state.


  • The future of our children and communities demands we bring the best of ourselves. Working collaboratively to provide more opportunities for children will allow Mississippi to develop afterschool programs that benefit from our collective expertise, lived experience, and concern for the wellbeing of our children.


  • Sustainable afterschool programs require a diverse network of community supporters and partners committed to assessing the needs of children and families and identifying untapped community resources. We work to ensure these committed stakeholders have the tools and training they need to build and sustain high-quality afterschool programs.
