SNBC Honored as Finalist for National Afterschool Award

SNBC's afterschool program at A.P. Giannini Middle School is one of only a handful of finalists for a MetLife Afterschool Innovator Award, a highly prestigious and competitive national award in conjunction with the Afterschool Alliance. More than 300 afterschool programs serving middle school youth from across the country applied, and SNBC's program was identified as one of the best examples of an afterschool program that brings multiple benefits to the unique needs of middle school students.

Though SNBC has learned that we are not the ultimate winner of the award, we are honored to have our innovative work recognized in this way. SNBC's program has also been highlighted in an issue brief produced by the Afterschool Alliance. Check it out here.

We're privileged to have made it this far in the selection process. Becoming a finalist for this national award is further evidence that SNBC is a national model right here in the Sunset District!
