Funding for a variety of projects expands opportunities for project-based learning.


The EAST Initiative is pleased to announce that a total of nearly $130,000 has been awarded for 12 projects involving 16 EAST programs to complete after-school projects. The grants are provided in cooperation with the Southeast Educational Cooperative and Arkansas Department of Education. The grant program, called EAST After Hours, is designed to make after-school-hours projects possible — expanding the scope of local EAST programs by providing more hands-on learning experiences for students, as well as valuable services for their communities.

“EAST After Hours continues to provide EAST programs and communities with the opportunity to innovate and fulfill a significant educational need. The EAST Initiative is proud to be a part of this incredible effort,” said EAST Initiative President and C.E.O. Matt Dozier.
