In Shanghai, a mega-city of approximately 24.15 million people (Shanghai Municipal Statistics Bureau, 2015, "Art. 13"), the population of migrant workers continues to increase. According to the Shanghai Municipal Statistics Bureau (2015), as of 2015, 9.81 million residents did not have household registration papers. Of these, 70%, or 6.87 million were migrant workers ("Art. 13"). The researcher relied on qualitative research techniques to explore the outcomes of an after-school program for the children of migrant workers. The study took place over a four-year period with data being collected throughout. Keeping in mind methodology limitations, the analysis affirmed the success of the hoped for outcomes of the program.
