Iowa Afterschool Alliance


Do you want to make your community a better place for kids?

Do you want to strengthen the Iowa afterschool community?

Do you want to be a leader in afterschool in Iowa?

The Iowa Afterschool Alliance is hosting a number of meetings across the state to share a new data tool to identify afterschool opportunities exclusively with program providers like you. We would like you to join us to be a leader in this project! We’ll be visiting several communities over the next year. Be sure to join us at one of them!

The roundtables are targeted to afterschool program providers – schools, churches, CBOs, STEM, recreation, et. al. This is your chance to be a founding leader in this exciting data initiative!  

The regional forums are open to anyone interested in finding out more about the project, data collected up to that date, and helping to formulate next steps for the data collection!
