Afterschool programs help kids learn, grow, and reach their full potential. Young people gain hands-on experience and learn to communicate, collaborate, and lead – skills they’ll need in the jobs of tomorrow. Being in an afterschool program helps children make smart decisions and avoid risky behaviors after the school day ends, giving working parents peace of mind.
Families across America rely on afterschool, and the demand for programs is growing every day. For every child in a program, two are waiting to get in.
