Each year, thousands of girls in our region participate in after-school programs that provide opportunities for academic support, physical activities and enrichment. Many of these programs take place at schools receiving Title I funding, financial assistance provided to schools with high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all students meet academic standards. Others operate in community centers, migrant camps, apartment complexes and other informal settings and are funded through community efforts. Girl Scouts supports after-school providers by sponsoring programs for girls that blend critical life-skill development with activities that support academic success and leadership.
Our After-School Partnerships Program makes participation in Girl Scouts easy, affordable, and fun for girls, their families, and after-school providers.
