Afterschool for All Challenge

On Feb. 7, 2013, hundreds of people across the country stepped up to the challenge and reached out to elected officials to let them know that we support afterschool for all. The Virginia delegation included six adults and eight youth from Alternatives, Inc. in Hampton, Virginia. Our youth had the opportunity to speak at the Breakfast of Champions as well as visit the offices of our elected officials in Virginia to share their personal connection to afterschool, and how it has impacted their lives. 

 More than 200 state afterschool leaders and experts held face-to-face meetings on Capitol Hill with senators and representatives to echo the message that afterschool works to keep kids safe, inspire learning and help working families.
