More Students in Virginia and Nationally Are Attending Summer Learning Programs, But Unmet Demand Is High. Washington, DC — Participation in summer learning programs in Virginia has increased in the last five years, but there is still tremendous unmet demand, according to data from the America After 3PM study.

VPOST is pleased to announce the 5th Annual Lights On Afterschool Mini Grant competition. VPOST is offering support through mini-grants to local afterschool programs to help offset event costs.  Programs are invited to submit a request for funds to assist in covering expenses that would help increase the profile of the event or help make it more attractive to media and policymakers.  Funding is allocated through a competitive grant process open to all afterschool providers including school board operated and private provider operated sites.  All Lights On Afterschool funded programs must have a focus on positive youth development principles with developmentally age appropriate activities, and have appropriate staff-to-student ratios.
