The Alabama Afterschool Community Network (ALACN) is an initiative of the Truman Pierce Institute of the College of Education at Auburn University. ALACN works in collaboration with the Alabama State Department of Education, the Alabama 21st Century Community Learning Centers, and the Alabama Community Education Association (ACEA) to ensure Alabama youth, families, and communities have access to high quality programming during Out-of-School time that promotes positive development and life-long learning. Our goal as a Network is to support and strengthen Out-of- School time programs that engage youth, families, communities, and policy makers as champions for sustainable, high-quality programming through engagement and capacity building to inspire a lifetime of learning.

ALACN partners with the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and the National Network of Statewide Afterschool Networks.
