Youth Development Champions Program
AzCASE is looking for the 2020 Class of Youth Development Champions that will represent a broad cross-section of advocates, from afterschool providers to nonprofit leaders and elected officials.
Each Champion is a leader within their organization and/or community who is interested and committed to sharing their experiences and content knowledge with community partners, influential stakeholders, and other afterschool advocates.
The Youth Development Champions Program is a year-long fellowship for passionate out-of-school time supporters from across Arizona to lead the public discourse on the value of out-of-school time programming and advocate for increased public and private investment in proven practices.

There are two rounds of grants per year, the application deadlines are June 15 and December 15. Any application coming after those dates will be considered for the next grant round.
The After School Advantage (ASA) program is IGT’s flagship community initiative, devoted to providing young people with access to technology in a safe, nurturing afterschool environment, while promoting opportunities in digital learning centers in communities where the Company operates.
