Afterschool Day at State House 2018

After School Day at the Statehouse 2018

On May 24, nearly 100 leaders, educators, and community members gathered for ALC’s Afterschool Day at the Rhode Island State House.

They advocated for out-of-school learning programs by presenting a unified message highlighting Rhode Island’s needs: 

  • Increased access for local children
  • Dedicated state funding 
  • A permanent joint commission to oversee program creation and improvement
