Based on a survey of parents or guardians of school-aged children living in a rural community, this blog provides insights into the current afterschool and summer program landscape in rural America, in particular the significant and rising unmet demand in rural communities.
The 2020 edition of America After 3PM is designed to build a better understanding of how young people are spending their summers and to dig deeper into the types of summer experiences children across America have. The data were collected about Summer 2019 from a survey of nearly 30,000 households and 200 phone interviews.
During the pandemic, local community providers pioneered Community Learning Hubs to open their doors to support students that are in hybrid or all virtual schooling. The Afterschool Alliance has created this tool kit based on interviews with 32 programs, intermediaries and schools.
