Afterschool: Providing Multiple Benefits to Middle School Students. MetLife Foundation Afterschool Alert. Issue Brief No. 42
Afterschool Alliance
Afterschool programs across the country provide critically needed services to the nation's children and families; however, many afterschool providers find it difficult to serve youth once they enter middle school. Middle school youth have a unique set of social, emotional and academic needs, and afterschool successfully weaves these together, using enriching and engaging activities to support the whole child. Afterschool offers multiple benefits to these young adolescents, but only if the barriers to participation are removed, and youth are given the opportunity to meaningfully participate. (Contains 11 endnotes.)
