After school Programs have increased, now serving around 8.4 million children. These programs help with academic and social achievement. They help keep children safe and out of trouble, as well as improvement in different academic areas.
This only occurs if the after school program is effective. There are five key components in order to have an effective program.
Having clearly defined goals that are attainable and are desired by the children is important. Having goals allows you to hold you program to a standard and feel accomplished. It is important to include the children in certain decisions regarding program activities. You want a program that the children love and can benefit from.
