Statewide afterschool networks exist in 40 states (blue on the map below) and are vehicles for bringing together policymakers, educators, childcare providers, youth development workers, program developers, advocates, parents and others interested in improving outcomes for children and youth through school-based and school-linked afterschool programs. These networks forge local, state and federal partnerships and collaborations in support of comprehensive statewide policies that expand learning.
