Our Mission

On behalf of school-age youth, the N.D. Afterschool Network supports and advocates for high-quality, out-of-school-time programming, resources and services.

Our Vision

By working in partnership with out-of-school time programs, schools, state and community based organizations, the N.D. Afterschool Network works to connect, support, and advocate at the local, state and national level to support funding afterschool programs and raise awareness of the benefits of afterschool for children, families and communities- N.D.'s current and future workforce.

The ND Afterschool Network is launching the first statewide Afterschool Database!

The database will help families, schools, communities and elected officials locate afterschool and summer learning programs and identify assets & gaps in out-of-school time programming throughout North Dakota. The afterschool field in ND is segmented due to funding streams, gaps in policy, and lack of awarenss of the immense benefits of high-quality out-of-school time programs to students PreK-12 and their families. 

Add your program to the map!

Out-of-School Time programs serve youth PreK-12 before school, after school, summers, weekends, and during school breaks. Programs include organized, regularly scheduled activities in a structured, supervised envirnoment and include an educational or enrichment activity. They can take place in schools, school-age childcare centers, community-based organizations, universities, libraries, museums, camps, and other locations.

Help us reach our goal of mapping ALL out-of-school time programs throughout the state. Programs who register by September 30, 2019 will be entered to win an iPad (valued at $250)!
