Afterschool programs in Vermont have a culture and practice of sharing ideas and resources with one another. The resources and documents included on this page represent some of the program planning and development tools created by Vermont programs and made available to others for their own modification and use.
These tools can be downloaded and modified for use in your own programs. When using any of these examples, the best protocol is to include a brief acknowledgment of original program or author.
If you have particular tools or resources that you have developed and would like to share with others, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

These programs have focused their sustainability efforts in a variety of grants, fundraising, partnerships, sponsorships, school budget allocation, foundations, and reimbursements. Many thanks to the directors of the following programs for their permission to share these documents (which are evolving works in progress): Beth Brooks at ENCORE and Betsy Stacey at BEAMS. These plans are each available to download as a sample for how you might create your own sustainability plan:
