New Jersey No Longer a 'Top 10 State for Afterschool'
New Household Survey: Afterschool Programs Have Strong Support from Parents, But Unmet Demand for Afterschool Programs in the State is High

Washington, DC - New Jersey has not kept pace with national progress on important measures of afterschool participation, according to a new household survey commissioned by the Afterschool Alliance. The 2014 edition of America After 3PM found that demand for afterschool programs still far exceeds supply, and the number of children in New Jersey who would participate if an afterschool program were available surpasses the number of children who are enrolled in afterschool programs in the state. The survey also finds that the vast majority of parents with children in afterschool programs in New Jersey see significant benefits from their children's participation.
