Before and after school programs provide supervised care on a regular basis for children during hours of the day when school is not in session and parents are not available.  Some benefits* are:

  • Peace of mind that your children are safe and well cared for in a nurturing, safe, and fun environment without the need of being home alone.
  • Since programs operate in your school, there are no transportation worries.
  • Children who attend after school programs have better grades and behavior and often outperform students not in structured programs.
  • 79% of students who participate in after school programs are academically above average students, while those who do not engage in after school activities are five times more likely to be academically below average students.
  • An opportunity to engage in an organized extracurricular activity outside of the classroom while enhancing the family/school relationship.
  • A decreased chance of students engaging in smoking, drinking, drugs, sex, teen pregnancy and juvenile crime.
  • Children in after school programs often have the opportunity to make friends and build relationships with individuals they would not otherwise encounter.
  • A healthier lifestyle in contrast to unsupervised students spending their time home alone watching TV, playing video games, surfing the internet, and eating junk food.

*All findings referred to in this proposal come from the America After 3PM household survey conducted for The After School Alliance with support from the JCPenney After School Fund.
