Our Vision: We see Indiana as a place where all K-12 youth have access to high quality learning experiences beyond the school day that prepare them for success in school, college, careers, and life.
ACTION: Host a Successful Site Visit

We expect afterschool funding to be back on the chopping block this year. Let's get ahead of the curve and make our message to Congress loud and clear: we can't afford cuts to afterschool programs!

Inviting a lawmaker to tour your afterschool program is one of the best ways to show him or her firsthand the impact of afterschool programming on students and families in their district and/or state. 

ACTION: Send a Message

Last year, dedicated advocates and afterschool champions on Capitol Hill saved afterschool programs across the country from shuttering due to lack of federal funding. The government is back open, but the appropriations process rages on - even as a new budget from the White House is primed to be released in early February.
