(Out of School Time)
(nights, week-ends, holidays, before and after school)
Millions of urban youth lack access to out of school time programs that provide rich opportunities for growth, learning and fun. One possible solution - coordinating the work of government agencies, private funders, programs and others involved in OST programming - is being pioneered by a group of Wallace Foundation- supported city efforts. Fort Worth, is one of the eleven cities that are part of the solution!
We have 209 square miles of children whose lives can be transformed by FW SPARC.
Their transformation will depend upon, Fort Worth's ability to produce a “collective impact".
Are you up for it?
Our children are counting on YOU!
