  • The Mississippi Statewide Afterschool Network works to communicate the value and importance of afterschool and summer programs. The most powerful stories are those that come directly from program providers and focus on children and families who participate. We’re building a collection of compelling stories to share with policymakers and other stakeholders in Mississippi, in our print or digital materials. Complete the following information to showcase how your afterschool and summer programs offer fun, creative experiences that get kids excited about learning and spark their interest in future careers. We contact you before publishing your piece.
