With support from the Wallace Foundation, the YEF Institute is coordinating this $7.8 million, four-year initiative to strengthen citywide afterschool systems that serve children and youth in Baltimore, Md.; Denver, Colo.; Fort Worth, Texas; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Louisville, Ky.; Nashville, Tenn.; Philadelphia, Pa.; and St. Paul, Minn.
In 2012, the YEF Institute, with support from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and The Wallace Foundation, provided financial and technical assistance to nine statewide afterschool networks to host a second round of mayoral summits on afterschool and expanded learning: Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington. The first round of summits were hosted in 2009-10 in Arizona, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan and South Carolina with support from the Mott Foundation.
Supported by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, this project helped municipal leaders build citywide afterschool systems in Albany, N.Y.; Morgantown, W.Va.; Omaha, Neb.; St. Paul, Minn.; Tampa, Fla.; Tulsa, Okla.; and Vancouver, Wash.
Supported by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, this project helped cities build citywide afterschool systems in Alexandria, Va.; Baton Rouge, La.; Bridgeport, Conn.; Boise, Idaho; Denver, Colo.; Florence, S.C.; Las Cruces, N.M.; and Salt Lake City, Utah.
Supported by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, this project helped city leaders use afterschool programs to raise student achievement in Brockton, Mass.; Cleveland, Ohio; Little Rock, Ark.; Norfolk, Va.; Pasadena, Calif.; and Waco, Texas.

Lessons from these cities' initiatives are available in the YEF Institute's report, The Afterschool Hours.
