Lights on Afterschool Poster Contest

The 2024 Lights On Afterschool poster contest is officially open, and the Afterschool Alliance team is looking for any artwork that represents the spirit of afterschool programs. The artwork does not have to be created specifically for the Lights On Afterschool poster contest, but it must represent afterschool. This is a great opportunity for an afterschool program to gain national recognition for the opportunities it offers. The winning artist will be featured on the website, blog, and a national press release, and their afterschool program will be credited on the poster in addition to receiving the grand prize of $500.  Read the rules and guidelines, then submit artwork by June 15, 2024 by mail or electronically.

Boosting Transfer Student Success at CUNY

Do you support college prep, access, and success, and are you curious to learn more about the landscape of college transfer within the CUNY system? In March 2024, Center for an Urban Future released a report about the college transfer experience within CUNY. The report first disaggregates and examines student outcomes data, identifying uneven experiences based on factors such as demographics and campus, and then looks at promising practices within CUNY and beyond. Finally, the piece outlines strategic recommendations, both on a CUNY-level and a city/state level, that would improve student outcomes and increase equity. Read the full report on the CUF website.
