In 2004, Michigan established the Michigan After-School Partnership, a collaborative of public and private agencies aimed at promoting quality after-school programs. This project supported the partnership's efforts to integrate physical activities into after-school programs by:
- Increasing awareness of child obesity in Michigan.
- Disseminating best practices for incorporating physical activities into after-school programs.
- Identifying physical activity curricula and training after-school providers in using that curricula.
- Developing a coordinated network of after-school services.
