After School - Why does it matter?
Boston After School & Beyond
The after-school hours represent a tremendous opportunity—time for students to build skills and develop socially and emotionally among peers and caring adults. Quality after-school programs reinforce and expand upon the learning children do during the school day, contributing significantly to student success.
- 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).
