Afterschool Access Report
Dallas Afterschool commissioned buildingcommunitiesWORKSHOP to conduct a study on the availability of afterschool programs in Dallas County as a means to identify recommended geographic focus areas for strategic expansion of local afterschool programs.

buildingcommunitiesWORKSHOP developed a multi-criteria model to analyze data within five areas: Existing Afterschool Environment, Current Neighborhood Conditions, Local School Environment, Accessibility + Proximity, and Change in Neighborhood Conditions.

Ten priority areas were identified for afterschool expansion. However, the findings show that the entire county is in critical need of afterschool programming.

Lights On Afterschool Reception at Cafe 43

We hosted a special reception in Cafe 43, located in the George W. Bush Presidential Library, to celebrate Lights on Afterschool and the pre-release of our Afterschool Access report. The event featured large scale maps from the report and a distinguished guest speaker, Anne Wicks . Wicks, Director of Education Reform at the Bush Institute, gave a stirring speech about the relevance of data in education, the significance of a unifying afterschool agency such as Dallas Afterschool, and the value of quality afterschool programs for children.
