Keeping Kids Learning and Developing

As the hub of the Ohio Afterschool Network, the Afterschool Alliance of NW Ohio helps ensure that afterschool, extended day and summer learning programs meet or exceed standards for quality.

Why is Quality Afterschool and Enhanced Programming Important?

Programming after school, before school and over the summer can help students avoid risky behavior and maintain academic progress. Quality afterschool programs are safe, fun, academic, enriching spaces that take a whole-child approach to development outside the classroom.

Students who regularly participate in quality afterschool programs:

  • Improve their self-perception and esteem
  • Gain opportunities for physical activity, healthy snacks and nutrition
  • Make better decisions and take fewer negative risks
  • Are excited about and more engaged in learning
  • Display positive behavior in the classroom
  • Can connect with adults and mentors to broaden their base of support

Training and Resources for Better Afterschool Experiences

The Afterschool Alliance of NW Ohio (ASA) helps programs meet the academic and social-emotional needs of children from Kindergarten through grade 12 with comprehensive training and resources. We advocate, educate, inform, network and foster collaboration with best practices that boost program efficacy and sustainability.
