Afterschool programs in Oregon keep kids safe, boost student success, and help parents keep their jobs. Kids achieve more, productivity goes up, and risky behaviors go down.

Oregon parents strongly support afterschool:


support public funding for afterschool


say afterschool helps them keep their jobs


say afterschool excites kids about learning


say afterschool reduces the likelihood that kids will engage in risky behavior

The need for programs far exceeds the funding available.
