Research has shown that kids who participate in after school programs have:
- Higher grades and test scores
- Improved attitudes toward school, higher expectations for school achievement, better work habits, and higher attendance rates.
- Lower youth involvement in risky behaviors: drinking, smoking, using drugs, having sex, and becoming involved in violence
- Significant increase in positive behaviors: social and behavioral adjustment, better relations with peers, more effective conflict resolution strategies, and increased parent involvement
