Wisconsin Afterschool Network
Our Center for Community Health Advancement team supports the Wisconsin Afterschool Network through advocacy and professional development for out-of-school time program providers. The network’s goal is to ensure all children in our state have the opportunity to attend high quality afterschool and out-of-school programs year-round. These programs provide opportunities and interventions for at-risk youth, a large percentage of whom participate in these programs.
Mission: Wisconsin Afterschool Network (WAN) is to support schools and community partners in delivering high-quality school-age afterschool programs to diverse children and youth to promote academic success, personal/social development and healthy active living.
Vision: All Wisconsin school-age children and youth have the opportunity to attend a high-quality afterschool or expanded learning program.
