Montana after-school programs will soon have a new support network.
On Oct. 1 the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation http://www.mott.org/ committed to granting $75,000 each year for the next three years to fund the Montana Afterschool Alliance. http://afterschoolalliance.org/polic ... ate_abbr=MT
The organization will be the first in Montana, but is an affiliate of the national Afterschool Alliance that supports after-school networks in 41 states, according to the nonprofit's website.
"The premise is that in basically all states there [was] no state champion for after-school activities," Danica Jamison, president and CEO of the Greater Gallatin United Way, said.
