America After 3PM: Afterschool Programs in Demand


America After 3PM, a project of the Afterschool Alliance, spans a decade of data chronicling how children spend the hours between 3 and 6 p.m.—the hours after school ends and before parents typically return home from work. It highlights the trends of afterschool program participation, documents the benefits associated with participation in afterschool programs, and measures public support for afterschool programs.

One of the most unique features of America After 3PM is that it probes the unmet demand for afterschool by surveying parents across the United States. In addition to the full report, there are national and state-level data dashboards (see Washington State data here), and deep-dive special reports on topics such as rural communities and communities of concentrated poverty.
