Make the case why summers matter!
Nourish bodies and minds through summer meals!
Engage local media, families, community members and elected officials to keep kids learning, healthy and safe.
Help us engage older adult volunteers to support youth this summer! The #Gen2GenSummer Challenge is part of Encore.org’s Generation to Generation campaign, a national effort to inspire adults over 50 to make a positive difference in the lives of children and youth. #Gen2GenSummer will encourage thousands of older adults to take action and volunteer with local organizations like yours. Post your summer volunteer opportunities by following these instructions.
Save the date for Lights on Afterschool, October 26, 2017! Launched by the Afterschool Alliance in October 2000, Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities.
Find resources to fund your program.
This guide is made to help state and local leaders identify the most promising funding streams to support summer learning and to show opportunities to meet the needs of young people during the critical summer months.
