Arizona’s out-of-school time programs need state level support now

Thank you to those who have supported our efforts to establish state funding for Arizona’s out-of-school time programs. Your commitment to the advancement of quality development for school-aged youth is critical, now more than ever. For those who have not had the chance to show your support, we invite you to act now.

With the latest findings from America After 3PM, we know that Arizona’s youth have critical, unmet needs largely due to a significant lack of accessible, quality out-of-school time opportunities.
