Connecticut After School Network Organization Overview:  The Connecticut After School Network is a public-private partnership of statewide, regional and local groups that promote the safety, learning, and healthy development of children and youth outside the traditional classroom.  Our organization is a network of many partner organizations and agencies, and facilitates connections among a broad range of state, regional, and local partners.

The Connecticut After School Network’s activities are directed toward building the capacity and commitment of communities, agencies, and systems to increase the quality and availability of programs during non-school hours.  The Network’s overarching goal is to build an effective and integrated statewide system of high-quality afterschool, summer, and other expanded learning opportunities (ELOs).  An effective system provides a continuum of support that ensures the academic, social, emotional, and healthy development of children from birth through young adulthood.

In order to accomplish its system-building goals, the Network brings together a diverse array of leading statewide stakeholders committed to afterschool and expanded learning opportunities to:

  1. coordinate and expand resources and existing capacity in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors in service to afterschool and other expanded learning programs;
