There is a strong need to study youth after-school programs. How do Michigan parents of youth view after-school programs? Do they enroll their children in after-school programs? Who is more likely to participate in after-school programs? What types of after-school programs exist in Michigan? Using data from the State of State Survey (SOSS), the authors examined these questions and analyzed the extent to which children between the ages of 5 and 17 in Michigan participated in after-school program activities. They also examined the extent to which children's participation in after-school programs is unevenly accessed and depends on the social context, including race/ethnicity, gender, family structure, socio-economic status, and rural/urban residential location. This report summarizes differences in participation in after-school program activities among children in Michigan from varying social contexts, including gender, race/ethnicity, marital status of parents, parental education and family income, and metro/nonmetro residence.
