Partnerships make our community stronger

The Rhode Island After School Network is proud to work closely with many national organizations that share our goals.

Funded, in part, by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, we’re part of a 50-state network; the National Statewide Afterschool Network actively collaborates with our colleagues across the nation to continue building a movement for learning beyond the traditional classroom.

We’re also a state affiliate of the National AfterSchool Association, a membership association for professionals who work with youth in diverse school and community-based settings to provide extended learning opportunities during out-of-school hours.

As a state affiliate, we work with the National Afterschool Association to pursue three major strategies:

  1. Improving program quality by developing and equipping professionals.
  2. Connecting and growing the field of afterschool and expanded learning programs and providers.
  3. Bridging research, practice, and policy to strengthen the profession.
