The CCS provides leadership in afterschool policy and practice. Its
publications offer afterschool programs valuable tools in starting-up
and improving the quality of their programs. Through its Healthy

Behaviors Initiative (HBI), CCS has published Changing Lives, Saving Lives: A Step-by-Step Guide to Developing Exemplary Practices in Healthy Eating, Physical Activity and Food Security in Afterschool Programs and supports HBI Learning Centers across the state to help other afterschool programs. CCS consultants also provide training, coaching and mentoring.
