This report draws on research from a range of fields to establish the context for afterschool programs and their role in academic success. By examining afterschool programs, the report provides an overview of positive outcomes that set students up for engaged, lifelong learning.
Experiences during adolescence shape students’ futures as learners and individuals. Afterschool time presents opportunities for the social-emotional and interest-driven learning through hands-on experiences-something that is sometimes missing from school curricula.
