(Out of School Time)
(nights, week-ends, holidays, before and after school)
Millions of urban youth lack access to OST programs that provide rich opportunities for growth, learning and fun.
Fort Worth SPARC is coordinating the work of government agencies, private funders, local programs and others involved in OST programming. This work has been funded by The Wallace Foundation and supported by The City of Fort Worth Park and Recreation Department.
We have 349 square miles and 250,000 Fort worth children whose lives will be transformed by FW SPARC.
Their transformation will depend upon, Fort Worth's ability to produce a “collective impact".
Are you up for it?
Our children are counting on YOU!

Strengthening after-school Programs through Advocacy, Resources and Collaboration
Fort Worth SPARC is a growing network of Fort Worth's OST (Out of School Time) programs.
We collaborate with the City of Fort Worth and its 14 school districts, OST providers and community organizations.
We strive to improve all youth programs by encouraging and providing:
Quality training to the people who work with Fort Worth youth each and every day
Equity in access to quality programs for ALL Fort Worth youth
Data collection supporting continuous improvement and innovation in Fort Worth's available youth programming is in process as a city-wide data repository.
