Regional Coalitions

IAN engages cities and regions in creating coordinated systems to expand out-of-school time learning for K-12 youth in Indiana. These community coalitions connect youth programs, schools and universities, faith based groups, and civic and businesses. IAN uses coalition-building frameworks developed by the Columbus Education Coalition / Institute for Coalition Building and the Wallace Foundation.

IAN’s role varies according to the needs of each community. We work as coordinator, convener, advisor, or facilitator, as needed.  But the intention is that local leadership leads the work within one year.
