Helping Kids Learn & Grow

Afterschool programs help children learn, grow, and realize their full potential. Students learn foundational skills, like communication, teamwork, and problem solving.  And the results are evident: students who attend afterschool programs are more interested in learning, attend school more often, get better grades, and are more likely to graduate.

Giving families peace of mind

Support Parents

89% of North Dakota parents say afterschool programs help them keep their job and 92% say afterschool programs give them peace of mind while they are at work.

Juvenile crime peaks between the hours of 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. Parents need flexible, affordable options to ensure their kids stay safe and out of trouble after the school bell rings. By enrolling their kids in afterschool programs, parents can know that they are supervised, learning, and having fun. And because they don’t have to worry about their kids’ safety, parents can focus on providing for their families.

Expanding horizons for our youth

Inspiring Future Careers

Afterschool programs open a new world of opportunities by preparing young people for the jobs of tomorrow.

Businesses want to hire responsible problem solvers and team players—and afterschool develops these skills. Participants gain hands-on experience and learn to communicate, collaborate, and lead. Plus, they develop an interest in science and gain STEM-related skills.

Afterschool programs are locally-driven solutions that help children learn and grow, families balance work with home, and employers hire the workforce they need.
