WHY IT MATTERS TO YOU!
We recently asked community members why afterschool matters. Throughout the month of December, we will be sharing some of their responses.
" Afterschool programs help parents that work until 5pm.
Please help keep our kids safe. "

-Demarius, parent
Your support helps ensure students in Dallas are safe between the hours of 3 and 6pm. A gift to Dallas Afterschool can make a huge difference in the life of a child!

RESEARCH PROVES OUR APPROACH WORKS!
Independent research indicates that working with Dallas Afterschool and our Quality Advisors directly correlates to increased afterschool program quality.

Special thanks to SMU's Center on Research and Evaluation for compiling and analyzing the research results.
