Afterschool for Children and Teens Now Coalition

The Afterschool for Children and Teens Now (ACT Now) Coalition is a diverse statewide network of more than 2,100 members from across the state. We believe that an increased commitment to young people beyond the traditional school day is a crucial part of their growth into productive, healthy adults.

As part of a larger national afterschool network, ACT Now leverages best practices, resources, and partnerships in order to ensure that young people in Illinois have access to quality, affordable afterschool and youth development programs.
