Ignite Afterschool is a statewide network of organizations committed to closing access gaps to high quality afterschool and summer learning opportunities experienced by young people across Minnesota. Decades of research demonstrate that regular participation in high quality afterschool programs can support success in school, STEM identity, social emotional learning and other key outcomes areas that support positive outcomes for youth.
As the statewide network, Ignite supports afterschool programs across the state in professional development and continuous program improvement. Ignite also provides key information on gaps, needs and effective practices to help make the case for afterschool. The network is comprised of other state association, city/local afterschool collaboratives, funders, and afterschool program providers from urban, suburban and Greater Minnesota communities.
