Why Afterschool Matters

Afterschool In Mississippi

Afterschool is a lifeline that keeps youth safe, helps kids learn and grow, and provides parents the ability to work without worry. While Mississippi is home to more than 250 afterschool programs, the demand for programs exceeds available spaces. In fact, 1 in 3 Mississippi children (53 percent) who are not in an afterschool program would be enrolled if it were available. That’s more than 221,535 children who are missing out on opportunities to participate in programming that supports their development academically, socially and economically.
