Afterschool and STEM advocates rally at Capitol, push for investments in preparing children and youth for future workforce needs

Rally and legislative visits reminded policymakers that afterschool and summer learning programs are a well-documented solution to supporting the academic and social growth of all students; yet, it remains an under-resourced strategy for closing the achievement gap in our state. Investing in quality (STEM) programs in the commonwealth will help inspire young people to pursue careers they never imagined before—and help them gain skills needed for virtually every job in the future. Learn more about Advocacy Day.
