Data mapping is a valuable tool for caregivers, stakeholders, and policymakers because it combines geo mapping of afterschool and summer program sites with pertinent data about the status of families, children and communities. This provides a visual depiction of how afterschool and summer programming intersect with the needs of the community and provides the ability to explore new programming opportunities.
The West Virginia Statewide Afterschool Network utilizes PolicyMap, a data clearinghouse firm, to map programs and provide data overlays.
The data was collected through a survey distributed to providers, non-profit organizations, and other programs via the following partners:
West Virginia Department of Education Nina M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers
West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Early Care and Education
Child Care Resource and Referral
Parks and Recreation
