Arkansas Afterschool Program Sustainability VISTA
The Afterschool Alliance and the Arkansas Out of School Network want all children to have access to affordable high quality afterschool and summer programs. High quality afterschool programs are shown to increase student academic performance, improve behavior and support regular school attendance. The 21st Century Community Learning Centers programs provide competitive funding for school community partnerships in Title 1 schools in need of improvement serving low income children. Initial funding is provided for a time limited period. To keep this resource operating for students and their families in their community, a community engagement and sustainability process is needed. Parents, teachers, principals and other education leaders, neighborhood and community leaders and supportive businesses and organizations have an important role in supporting these programs.
