Afterschool Community Champions

The Georgia Statewide Afterschool Network has launched an Afterschool Community Champions Program where passionate afterschool supporters from across Georgia advocate for increased federal, state, and local support of afterschool and out-of-school time programs. The Afterschool Community Champions Program plays a key role in our mission to advance, connect, and support quality out-of-school time programs to promote the success of youth throughout Georgia.

Champions are a select group of leaders in Georgia who commit to a year of civic engagement to strengthen community awareness, support effective programs, and bring diverse partners to the table. Throughout the year, there will be opportunities to develop an advocacy action plan, followed by the implementation of advocacy events with the support of a stipend. Champions also receive complimentary registration to the 2022 Georgia Afterschool & Youth Development Conference.

Now more than ever, we need advocates to support programs that are serving the needs of youth, families, and their community.

Applications for the 2021 Class of Champions are now closed.
