Teens in the Lifeguard program at Wells High School learn tips from their instructor.
Our program providers deliver After School Matters programs in the summer, fall and/or spring program sessions. These dedicated providers – professionals in their fields who serve as mentors to our teens – deliver programs both independently and through community-based organizations. They support our teens’ success from the beginning to the end of a program, and often beyond.

Renewal vs. RFP Application
Similar to last year, Current Providers — defined as those who are providing a program with After School Matters during the current program year (Summer 2019, Fall 2019, and Spring 2020) — will submit a Renewal Application focused on deepening their ability to create quality programs and provide effective instruction. Current providers do not need to submit a proposal through the standard Request for Proposal (RFP) process, unless you would like to propose a program with a different content area or focus.
