There are distinct differences in afterschool program participation and demand across income levels and ethnicity, according to a survey recently released by 21st Century Community Learning Centers.

Did you know?

1 in 5 children do not have someone to care for them after school, typically between 3 and 6 pm.

Children from low-income households are more likely than their higher-income peers to participate in afterschool programs, and Hispanic and African-American children are at least two times more likely to participate in afterschool programs than Caucasian children.

Parents today are much more satisfied than in the past with specific aspects of afterschool programs and hold stronger positive feelings regarding the benefits of afterschool programs.
