Afterschool Alliance

The Afterschool Alliance is the nation's leading voice for afterschool programs. We are dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of afterschool programs and advocating for more afterschool investments to ensure that all children have access to affordable, quality afterschool programs.

We are committed to advancing afterschool STEM learning opportunities for young people across the country. Afterschool programs play a major role in providing meaningful STEM learning experiences to diverse groups of youth—they excite and sustain interest, build real skills, help youth connect STEM to their lives and communities, and introduce youth to a diverse array of professionals. We welcome you to Explore our resources for all things STEM and afterschool!
