Dasie Hope Youth Programs
Studies are constantly being done to show that children who are involved in a positive environment like an after school program are more likely to do better in school socially and academically.
Accordining to reports on AfterSchoolAlliance.org:
"The Promising Afterschool Programs Study, a study of about 3,000 low-income, ethnically-diverse elementary and middle school students, found that students reported improved social and behavioral outcomes: elementary students reported reductions in aggressive behavior towards other students and skipping school, and middle school students reported reduced use of drugs and alcohol, compared to their routinely unsupervised peers." (Policy Studies Associates, Inc., 2007)
"Teens who do not participate in afterschool programs are nearly three times more likely to skip classes than teens who do participate. They are also three times more likely to use marijuana or other drugs, and they are more likely to drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes and engage in sexual activity." (YMCA of the USA, March 2001)
