Afterschool, Community Service and Volunteerism. Afterschool Alert. Issue Brief No. 10
Afterschool programs provide many opportunities to engage youth in community service activities, which can teach youth valuable skills, help them realize their potential to meet community needs and foster a sense of civic responsibility. Afterschool programs also successfully recruit, train and utilize volunteers to work with youth in afterschool programs, which can help bolster community networking and garner new resources for these programs. Incorporating community service in afterschool programs is both a popular concept and a worthwhile investment. This brief provides information on specific afterschool youth programs.
