About Fort Worth After School
The history of Fort Worth After School (FWAS) is one of strategic planning and broad collaboration. Through several task forces dating back to 1995, joint meetings of the school and city council, the Our City Our Children initiative, and other efforts, the groundwork for the Fort Worth After School collaboration was laid. The city also had a history of providing after-school programs through the Weed and Seed program that offered safe havens at selected schools in high crime neighborhoods. Other organizations such as the YMCA, Clayton Child Care, Boys & Girls Club, and Camp Fire USA also provided afterschool opportunities.
