Community partnerships are the cornerstone of some of the most successful afterschool programs. For example, the average afterschool program funded by a 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) grant leverages resources through relationships with at least six local organizations. Higher education institutions are one of the most frequent partners. Many experts recognize the natural motivation and mutual benefits for universities to partner with schools and programs serving school-age youth. This issue brief discusses successful examples of such partnerships and highlights some of their benefits. (Contains 10 endnotes.)
