Vermont Afterschool Shares COVID-19 Resources for the Field

VT Afterschool story RESIZED

Vermont Afterschool is a statewide nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that the children and youth in every Vermont community are able to benefit from the power of afterschool, summer learning, and third space programs during the out-of-school time hours. When Governor Phil Scott directed schools to close in mid-March and remain closed through the end of the semester, the day-to-day functions of afterschool and youth-serving organizations were severely disrupted. Luckily, organizations like Vermont Afterschool immediately kicked into action to support programs throughout the state. 

"We don't know any better than anyone else what is ahead of us or how long the disruption will go on for, but we will do our best to offer up-to-date resources, ways to connect, and important things to know." Find all of Vermont Afterschool's COVID-19 resources here

The Vermont Afterschool blog is also a great resource, highlighting inspiring stories from third space programs across the state as well as providing key information for program providers.

We're asking the question, 'What's the role for philanthropy and for a community foundation in addressing them across Vermont communities with an eye on the long-term?' We believe that doing so is fundamental to the long term resilience of Vermont communities as we come out of this pandemic and face the years ahead."
