After school programs provide students with access to valuable learning experience such as academic help and extra-curricular activities. However not all elementary students have access to after school programs. For this Capstone Project, the researcher interviewed and surveyed after school program directors, and parents of children in an afterschool program, to learn about the availability, accessibility, and quality of after school programs in the local community. Using the information gathered from interviews and surveys, the data showed that local after school programs are both convenient for families and great for children. After school programs provide students with a valuable source of get academic help and opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities that are sometimes not available to them in their regular school day. Based on information gathered from interviews and a literature review, an action project was designed to provide parents with a resource of information about available after school programs in the local community. The goal of this project was to provide every elementary students with the opportunity to go to an after school program.
