          • Program Leadership

            Thoughtful community partners can provide more than financial contributions to OST programs. 

          • Partner Reporting 

            Proactive communication with community partners helps reinforce their value to the OST program and illustrates how their contribution increases the OST program's value to the community.

[TransACT] AfterSchool Programs has strengthened education and communities in Georgia, through the 21st CCLC program... As a state, we have seen significant gains in the number of students served because we are targeting those programs that have the greatest opportunity for improvement.

– Mike Thaler, Former Georgia Department of Education 21st CCLC Grant Manager

The Wausau School District has been using [Afterschool21] for Out-of-School attendance and record keeping since 2007. This has been a tremendous resource for 21st Century grant reporting. We run our programs under multiple funding sources and the ability to track attendance and create reports tied to the appropriate funding is valuable. I appreciate the ability to monitor at a District level and prepare reports as needed for principals and other stakeholders... Thank you, AfterSchool Programs team, for 'having our back.'
