After School Programs
These profiles were created by the Afterschool Investments project. The Afterschool Investments project, a project of the United States Department of Health and Human Services Administration, provides technical assistance to Child Care and Development Fund grantees and other State and local leaders supporting afterschool efforts. The profiles describe the character of afterschool programs and compare afterschool activities throughout the two states. Afterschool programs, as reviewed in the profiles, may occur before and after school, on weekends, and during summer months.
These 2009 reports were conducted by the Afterschool Alliance and sponsored by the JCPenney Afterschool Fund. The reports contain the results of surveys conducted in an effort to determine how many children in Kansas and how many children in Missouri attend afterschool programs, how many are unsupervised after school, and how these numbers compare to five years ago. Similar reports were completed for each of the fifty states. Nearly 30,000 households across the country were surveyed.
