The funding will allow organizations to develop new or expand existing AmeriCorps programs that provide afterschool opportunities for students.
WASHINGTON, DC (August 9, 2022) — One of the key ways AmeriCorps programs and their members serve local communities is by providing supplemental educational opportunities, like afterschool programs. This has perhaps never been more important than now, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has exacerbated longstanding inequities and education gaps in US schools.
A longtime supporter of afterschool programming, America’s Service Commissions (ASC) is pleased to announce that it has selected five organizations to receive two-year grants to support the expansion or creation of afterschool programs in their respective states. Funding for these grants — a total of $340,000 — is made possible by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, which is committed to supporting efforts that promote a just, equitable, and sustainable society.
Each grant is awarded to a collaborative partnership between a statewide afterschool network and a state service commission. The grant recipients, along with a summary of how each will use the funds, are listed below.
