About Us

Established in October 2014 with the support of a grant from The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the Colorado Afterschool Partnership (CAP) is one of fifty statewide afterschool networks that comprise the National Network of Statewide Afterschool Networks.

CAP works to foster statewide partnerships that improve outcomes for all children and youth through high-quality expanded learning opportunities like those found in afterschool and summer programs.

National Network of Statewide Afterschool Networks

Our overarching goal is to build coalitions of diverse organizations who can work together to leverage public and private funding and partnerships in support of afterschool and summer programs.  We focus our work in the following areas:
