Statewide Partnerships

Stronger, Smarter & More Successful Together

No matter what part of Minnesota you call home, we all have a stake in ensuring the success of our youth and our state.

Ignite Afterschool brings together allies in afterschool from all across the state. Our partners represent a diverse mix of organizations — from on-the-ground program providers to public institutions and many in-between.

Together, we’re strengthening and uniting our voices statewide.  We want to improve the funding, availability and quality of afterschool and summer programming for young people throughout Minnesota.

Together, we’re creating resources that can be shared by many in the afterschool community, no matter where they are located in Minnesota.  We want all young people in our state to experience the unique benefits that come from participation in high-quality afterschool programming.

To accomplish this, we need every community involved, which is why we’re committed to holding meetings or events in each quadrant of Minnesota (NE, NW, SW, SE) at least once a year. Click on our events calendar to see the events we’re planning; we look forward to seeing you there!
