Welcome to the Afterschool Zone

The Afterschoolzone is the virtual meeting place to share resources, know-how and innovative ideas. CASE for Kids uses the web site to update the community about funding opportunities, highlight model projects, and connect the community with after-school activities all across Harris County. This on-line interactive resource allows parents, providers, after-school programs, students, and the community an opportunity to connect during out-of-school time.

Making Afterschool Cool After Harvey

CASE for Kids, Harris County Department of Education’s Center for Afterschool, Summer and Enrichment for Kids, is back at work with a growing charge to best serve our out-of-school time community. We are inspired by stories of partners going above and beyond to serve youth while impacting families struggle to recover from Hurricane Harvey’s impact on the greater Houston area. During this time of recovery, we have extended deadlines, gathered resources and are seeking information to create a plan to leverage resources and potential funds dedicated to recovery for our out-of-school time community.
