Expanded Learning Opportunities, after-school and in the summer, are critical in fostering student success by providing programs that keep students safe and healthy, develop essential life skills and prepare them for college and career. 

High-quality Expanded Learning Opportunities programs offer children and youth the opportunity to build on the school day outside of limited traditional hours. But in Michigan, the gap between need and available resources continues to grow. That's why the Michigan After-School Partnership works to increase the investment in after-school to build a bright future for Michigan.

You can use this toolkit to spread the message about high-quality Expanded Learning Opportunities make a difference in your community, in the state of Michigan and in our country.
