After-school matters.

The after-school hours represent a tremendous opportunity for students to extend on what they learn in school, build critical skills, and develop socially and emotionally.

Students who participate in evidence-based after-school programs show improved school attendance, greater engagement in learning, and improved graduation rates (Huang et. al, 2008).

Students from low-income families who are most at-risk experience the greatest gains (Vandell et al, 2007).
