Culturally Specific After School Learning (CSASL)

This program provides grant opportunities for community-based organizations (CBOs), culturally specific organizations, school districts, charter schools, early learning hubs or early learning providers, Tribal governments, education service districts (ESDs), and post-secondary institutions of education or a partnership of these entities to offer culturally affirming and enriching after school learning opportunities for students, particularly focal students. 

The plan seeks to provide programming that is anchored in four (4) essential pillars of practice:

  1. Addressing unfinished learning through academic and mental health support
  2. Culturally affirming practices, including cultural identity development
  3. Leadership and self-advocacy skills
  4. Giving back to the community

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) will be awarding grants for organizations to implement strategies developed in the plan.
