(Out of School Time) 

(nights, week-ends, holidays, before and after school)

Millions of urban youth lack access to out of school time 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 and is being pioneered by a group of Wallace Foundation- supported city efforts.  Fort Worth, is one of the eleven cities that are part of the solution!                                                                                                                                                               



We have 349 square miles of 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!
