Do you want to make a difference in the life of a child? Join the Afterschool Alliance and the Georgia Statewide Afterschool Network on their mission to provide all children with access to affordable high quality afterschool and summer programs.
Research shows high quality afterschool programs increase student academic performance, behavioral improvements and are a factor in supporting regular school attendance. The 21st Century Community Learning Centers programs provide competitive funding for school community partnerships in Title 1 schools in need of improvement serving low income children. Initial funding is provided for a time limited period.
To keep this resource operating for students and their families in their community, a community engagement and sustainability process is needed. Parents, teachers, principals and other education leaders, neighborhood and community leaders and supportive businesses and organizations have an important role in supporting these programs.
