About NC CAP:
The North Carolina Center for Afterschool Programs (NC CAP) is a comprehensive, statewide network of afterschool stakeholders, including state agencies, state and local policy makers, afterschool providers and the private sector, that:

* Builds the capacity of the State and local communities to develop high quality afterschool programs for all N.C. children, especially for those at-risk for education failure.
* Builds support at the State and local level for expanding and sustaining afterschool programs throughout North Carolina.

NC CAP was created in 2003 by Governor Mike Easley to bring together the state?s afterschool providers, community leaders and policymakers to address the need for greater access to high quality afterschool programs that help children and youth succeed in school and out. The organization is supported by public, private and nonprofit entities dedicated to making access to quality afterschool a reality for all children and youth.
