This toolkit includes communications materials to help you make the case for afterschool across a variety of audiences and platforms. You’ll find sample social content for each month, message guides, factsheets, videos, graphics, imagery, and examples of state materials.



What’s new? 


  A new booklet compiles tools and resources to help leaders get ready for summer programming




  Find your state’s 2024 21st CCLC factsheet with the latest impact and evaluation data 




 Find hundreds of new high-resolution images in Flickr for your digital and print needs — search by topic or state



Remember! The content on this toolkit is designed for educating and engaging a variety of audiences. 

If materials are used or adapted for use in lobbying activities (e.g., asking for a vote on a specific piece of legislation), you must use funds from another source. No Mott Foundation funds may be used for direct or grassroots lobbying.
