Afterschool and expanded learning opportunities can serve as links in the chain of building and developing top notch students and 21st Century citizens. Afterschool connects many communities: academics, health and wellness, juvenile justice, STEM, and workforce preparedness. Therefore there are many stakeholders in the field of afterschool.
