slide2
Largest study ever of supply and demand for afterschool.
  • First conducted in 2002/2003 school year and released in 2004.
  • Still widely cited by policymakers and media.
  • Sponsored by JCPenney Afterschool Fund and research conducted by RTi.
slide3
Methodology
  • 29,754 households surveyed.
  • U.S. Mail sampling using IPSOS mail panel.
  • Same methodology as 2004 to ensure for trend-ability of data.
  • 250 in depth responses from each state; total of 11,865 in depth responses.
      • Margin of Error = less than +/- 1 percent.
slide4
More than a quarter of America’s schoolchildren are on their own after the school day ends.
  • The number of children who are unsupervised in the afternoons has risen from 14.3 million (25 percent) in 2004, to 15.1 million (26 percent) in 2009.
  • Today, 30 percent of middle school students (3,722,219) and four percent of elementary school children (1,133,989) are unsupervised after the school bell rings.
slide5
Even in these difficult economic times, parents show strong support for afterschool programs.
  • Nine out of ten parents surveyed agree that there should be “some type of organized activity or place for children and teens to go after school every day that provides opportunities to learn.”
  • Eight out of ten parents surveyed support public funding for afterschool programs.

Parents see immense value in afterschool programs.

  • Nearly nine in ten parents (89 percent) are satisfied with the afterschool programs their child attends.
  • The percentage of children currently participating in an afterschool program has risen significantly since 2003 from 11 percent to 15 percent in 2009.
slide6
Demand for afterschool programs has risen dramatically in the past five years.
  • Two in five parents (38 percent) with children who do not currently participate in an afterschool program say they would enroll their child in a program if one were available to them, which is a significant increase from the 30 percent seen in 2004.

Afterschool programs serve a high need population.

  • Relative to the 15 percent participation rate reported nationally, participation in afterschool programs is higher among households that qualify for free and reduced price lunches. Participation is also higher among African-American, Hispanic, Asian-American and Native American households.
slide7
The economy is taking a toll on kids and families.
  • Parents cite a number of barriers to enrolling their children in afterschool programs with more than half of parents (52 percent) citing cost and more than one in four reporting hours of operation (26 percent) and availability (27 percent) as reasons for non-participation.
  • On average, parents who pay for afterschool programs pay $67 per week, up from an average of $44 per child per week five years ago.
  • Nearly one in three households (31 percent) report that their children are spending more time in the care of a parent after school now than a year ago. Reasons include changes in work status and availability/affordability of programs.
  • While overall satisfaction with afterschool programs remains consistent since 2004, mean satisfaction is down on several factors, including cost, location and number of days/hours per day a child can attend a program.

Takeaways
  • We have seen progress. There are more kids in afterschool programs.
  • But, there is also greater demand:
    • more kids are on their own after school
    • more families who would sign their kids up if a program were available
  • Economy is having an impact.
  • Have to accelerate our efforts if we’re going to make sure all kids have access to quality programs.
