The efforts to form an Afterschool Network in North Dakota first began in 2012 and a formal proposal was submitted to the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation in February 2015. This initial request served to support the development of the North Dakota Afterschool Partnership. In 2016, the Partnership submitted an advancement request to form what we are today, the North Dakota Afterschool Network.
On behalf of the school-age youth, the ND Afterschool Network supports and advocates for high quality out-of-school time programming, resources and services.
The ND Afterschool Network promotes access to high-quality, safe, and affordable out-of-school time programming that supports positive academic and social outcomes for youth preK-12 across North Dakota.
By working in partnership with out-of-school time programs, schools, state and community-based organizations, the ND 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- ND's current and future workforce.
