The afterschool network efforts that have been led by GAIC to promote greater opportunities for Georgia's young people in the afterschool and summer hours have found a new home.  To reach the Georgia Statewide Afterschool Network, call (404) 521-0355.

Who We Are
The Georgia Afterschool Investment Council is dedicated to ensuring Georgia's youth have access to high-quality, affordable afterschool and summer learning programs. Over 1 million kids, at least half of Georgia’s school-age children, may spend time away from their parents between the hours of 3PM-6PM and in the summer. Too often, our youth do not have access to the quality out-of-school time experiences that can help them develop into educated, engaged citizens. The Georgia Afterschool Investment Council (GAIC) is committed to responding to such challenges.

Our organization is implementing an inter-related public policy and engagement strategy to improve youth development outcomes in Georgia and build the public will to support public and private investments in afterschool and summer learning. GAIC focuses on building the quality of out-of-school time programs by providing professional development opportunities focused on positive youth development and professionalizing the afterschool field.

A Global Learning Survey for Teachers, Principals, and Afterschool Staff

An exciting partnership is forming between the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) and the Georgia Afterschool Investment Council (GAIC).  This partnership is working to build a long term coalition of state and local leaders in education, afterschool, and business around the growing importance of helping Georgia's students succeed in a global economy.

In order to better understand Georgia's global learning landscape and shape our efforts, we want to hear about the global learning efforts that are taking place or being planned in your afterschool programs and schools.  Please take just a few minutes to complete one of the two surveys below.  Your input will help GaDOE and GAIC target our efforts.
