Afterschool Ambassador Program: Legacy of Leadership

The Robert Bowne Foundation and the Afterschool Alliance are partnering for the tenth year to sponsor 2014-15 Afterschool Ambassadors chosen from out-of-school time program staff in the NYC area. Afterschool Ambassadors work in their local communities and states to build awareness of the need for afterschool, and to act as a voice for individual programs and for the afterschool movement. Ambassadors’ principal objectives are to reach out to decision makers at all levels to underscore the need to fund afterschool programs, increase media and public awareness of the benefits of afterschool, and encourage allies from the education, business, government, religious, and other communities to speak out in support of afterschool. Ambassadors receive ongoing, intensive technical assistance throughout their term, as well as a $1,500 stipend. For more information or to request an application, email Matthew Freeman at
