When parents are not able to pick their students up afterschool because of work or other commitments, parents typically send the students to an afterschool program. If the parents do not have to money to send their children to a program that requires some form of payment, the parents turn to free afterschool programs that are based at the school site. These programs are usually academic-based and provide help with homework, as well as other enrichment activities. Bringing community members into these programs allows students to have more opportunities that help to expand their thinking. Fresh faces and different viewpoints allow the students to become well-rounded individuals, without costing the parents any money. The community can help students receive the most out of their afterschool experience besides just homework help and eating snack.
