Description

ExpandED Schools is a national nonprofit dedicated to closing the learning gap by increasing access to enriched education experiences. In 1998, we were founded as The After-School Corporation. In our first decade, we created the nation’s first citywide system of K-12 after-school programs and leveraged more than four dollars in private and public spending for every dollar of our founding grant. Today, we continue to reimagine learning time – in school, after school and during the summer – seeking to ensure that all kids have opportunities to discover their talents and develop their full potential. We develop scalable and sustainable models that provide more learning time. We:


· EXPAND the school day: We add more time each day to help close the learning gap by up to 450 hours each school year.

· ENGAGE the community: We bring additional passion, talent, child development expertise and role models into the classroom.

· ENHANCE the learning: We balance the curriculum with the arts, movement and personalized, hands-on enrichments such as robotics, book clubs, knitting, debate and salsa dance.
