I Love Afterschool - Let's Save It!

By Sam Piha

As we enter what will probably be a rocky 2017, it’s important that we act now to protect federal funding of our 21st CCLC programs. The Afterschool Alliance has created a brilliant strategy making Valentine’s Day cards to show your love of afterschool programs. These cards can be made by parents and youth. They can be sent to local newspapers or to state and federal legislators. 

The Afterschool Alliance has created a toolkit that makes this easy or you can bring your own creativity by making or using pre-made Valentine’s Day cards. Below are some links that explain and provide resources for this campaign:
