Support After School Programs

After school programs keep kids safe, help working families and improve academic achievement. More than 28 million children today have parents who work outside the home. Two-thirds of Americans say that it is difficult to find programs in their communities and that not enough programs are available.

Studies show that students involved in after school programs get better grades, attend school more and have improved behavior. They express greater hopes for the future and more interest in school. Teens who participate in after school programs are less likely to skip class, use marijuana and other drugs, smoke, drink alcohol or engage in other risky behaviors.
