AFTERSCHOOL IN

Wisconsin


Afterschool programs in Wisconsin keep kids safe, inspire learning, and give working parents peace of mind. Kids discover who they are and what they love to do, make smart choices, and avoid risky behaviors.

New Data: From a Time of Risk to a Time of Opportunity

A report by Fight Crime: Invest in Kids finds that afterschool programs play a vital role in turning the hours between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. into a time of opportunity for our young people, with the 70% drop in juvenile crime corresponding with the rise in availability of afterschool opportunities across the country.

Learn what the peak time for juvenile crime is in Wisconsin, as well as how when schools are closed but many parents are still on the job, afterschool programs are keeping kids safe, inspiring them to learn, and giving working parents peace of mind.Download the fact sheet for Wisconsin
