Commitment to Action

Afterschool and Science Centers Partnering to Serve Youth

Commitment by

Afterschool Alliance

In 2013, the Afterschool Alliance (Alliance) and the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) committed to increase partnerships between science centers and afterschool providers over the next three years as a means to expand the quality and amount of informal STEM education. Through this Commitment, programming for at least 6,000 youth, the majority from underrepresented communities, will be impacted through 30 new collaborations that reach an estimated 200 youth each. As a result, the number of youth gaining access to high-quality afterschool STEM education increase and awareness of the critical role of informal STEM education will increase.
