The Iowa Afterschool Alliance and its work to improve access to high quality out-of-school time programming is supported by passionate staff, a dedicated leadership team, and generous partners.
The Iowa Afterschool Alliance is a network of organizations and individuals who support high quality out-of-school time programming and seek to improve access to high quality programs across Iowa. The IAA serves as a convener, connector, and catalyst.
We bring people together to learn from one another through the sharing of community needs, local solutions, and best practices.
We connect local program providers with the partners, resources, and tools necessary to provide high-quality out-of-school time programming to youth that meet community needs.
We mobilize advocates to have a voice in policy at all levels and recognize the contributions afterschool has made in our communities to ensure equitable access to out-of-school time opportunities across the state of Iowa.
The 50 State Afterschool Network
For nearly 20 years, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation (www.mott.org) has made investments in a national network of diverse groups of organizations and champions to come together to build public will and systems for afterschool and summer learning. Now reaching every state, the 50 State Afterschool Network fosters partnerships and policies to develop, support, and sustain high-quality opportunities for children and youth.
