Afterschool as Important Places of Learning

By Sam Piha

One of the objectives of the Learning in Afterschool project is to raise awareness of the importance of afterschool to young people's learning - awareness of the general public, of decision makers, and of program leaders who are charged with designing afterschool experiences.

The California Afterschool Alliance has created a valuable factsheet entitled "California's Afterschool Programs Increase Learning," which can be downloaded by clicking here. This factsheet cites the Learning in Afterschool website as a resource for those who wish to promote learning as a key asset in afterschool. It is one of a suite of messaging materials that are available by going to http://www.ca3advocacy.org/ and clicking on "factsheets."
