Join Us in the Afterschool Movement
Hardworking families across Tennessee rely on afterschool and summer learning programs to help kids succeed, and help parents keep their jobs. In fact, more than three quarters of Tennessee parents say afterschool programs help kids gain workforce skills and help working parents keep their jobs. But recently, a Congressional committee voted to cut $191 million from the federal program that helps fund afterschool. If that legislation is passed, more than 3,700 children in Tennessee could lose access to afterschool programs. Show your support for afterschool programs!
