Afterschool for All Challenge
Participant Tools

For every child in an afterschool program, there are three more who would be if more programs were available. That's 25 million young people who are missing out.

21st Century Community Learning Centers, Child Care Development Block Grant, and American Rescue Plan funding is vital to ensure that all children have access to quality afterschool programs.
