Afterschool for All Challenge
Participant Tools

Congress faces tight spend caps for fiscal year 2025, while local afterschool and summer program costs continue to increase, along with the demand for programs. Thank you for joining us for the Afterschool for All Challenge and making the case for increased federal support for quality afterschool and summer learning programs.

Use these resources to support your Congressional meetings. Before June 10, you will get a link to the Challenge conference app, which will have essential info like your meeting schedule, sessions, map of Capitol Hill, and several of the resources posted here to help you in your meetings. Materials available on the app are noted with a icon.
