About this webinar:

Afterschool programs act as integral partners in rural communities. They keep kids safe, inspire learning and support working families. Yet for every one rural child in an afterschool program, there are three more waiting to get in.

Following the release of the Afterschool Alliance’s America After 3PM special report, The Growing Importance of Afterschool in Rural Communities, join us for this audience-centric webinar featuring guest speakers who will share systems of support in place at the state level, promising practices and key strategies to address the challenges unique to afterschool programs in rural communities. Findings on the state of afterschool in rural communities from the America After 3PM special report will also be discussed.
