January 18, 2011
The Wyoming Afterschool Alliance is partnering with the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST) and The Third Mile Group to conduct a survey of the capacity and effectiveness of afterschool programs across the state. NIOST director Ellen Gannett states, "Our work in Wyoming is the first of its kind in focusing attention on the unique needs of a rural state. While many policy and quality studies have been undertaken in urban areas across the country, far too often rural communities are left out of the equation."
