Thank Congress: Afterschool works to help kids thrive!

On September 28, 2018, President Trump signed into law the the FY 2019 minibus carrying the Defense and Labor, HHS, Education spending bills. In the bill, HR 6157, federal support for afterschool not only remains in place but was increased by $10 million, paving the way for an additional ten thousand students to be served by quality afterschool programming through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative. Please take a moment to send an email to your members of Congress thanking them for supporting children, youth, and families by increasing access to local afterschool and summer learning programs.
