After School Advocacy

After school programs provide valuable resources for children, families and communities. Not only do they offer safe options for after school care, but they extend learning with programs that emphasize fundamentals in important areas such as science, math, literacy, and the creative arts.

To fund these important activities, many programs rely on grants, but they can be competitive. At ExtendEd Notes, our resources help you advocate for your after school program through grant applications or other funding sources so you can rest easy knowing your program’s funding is taken care of.
