We Love AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS for America's Kids

Afterschool programs keep kids safe, inspire them to learn, and help working families.

The unmet demand for afterschool programs now totals 19.4 million children nationwide. Quality afterschool and summer learning programs are tremendously important to working families, children and youth. They provide homework help, mentoring, field trips, hands-on science, art, community service, job preparation, physical activity, and more — while providing the supervision needed to keep kids safe when their parents are at work. Please, support children and working families by investing in afterschool programs.

Help us reach 19,400 signers—one for every 1,000 children who could be benefiting from afterschool programs today. Once we hit our goal, the petition will be presented to leaders across the nation.
