About Mizzen

Mizzen by Mott partners with the out-of-school time community to provide high-quality resources and experiences with youth-serving professionals that spark curiosity, joy and a love of learning for children and youth.

Engaging Youth Content is designed by community-based organizations, afterschool programs, and educational entities committed to supporting high-quality programming for youth.

Empowering Educators Mizzen offers a growing library of professional development resources that equips and informs afterschool practitioners. 

Providing Equal Access Mizzen provides equitable access for all programs, youth participants, and program staff to the best teaching and learning content, tools, and resources available in the afterschool space.

Through support from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, this all-in-one tool is free to youth-serving professionals who are empowering young learners everywhere.

The Mott Foundation’s Afterschool Network

The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation has supported efforts to create high-quality educational opportunities for young people, particularly in underserved communities, for over 80 years. We fund and support a 50-state afterschool network and leading national organizations that reach 100,000 programs serving more than 10 million kids.

This work inspired us to support the development of Mizzen by Mott as a free app to help afterschool professionals deliver exciting learning opportunities that will inspire, engage and empower young learners.
