AfterZone Touted in New National Report

An evaluation undertaken by Public/Private Ventures and commissioned by The Wallace Foundation has been released, with a key finding that the AfterZone is an innovative after-school model which has succeeded in enrolling over 40 percent of the student population in its seven participating middle schools. 

“In the five years since its inception, PASA has built an accessible citywide system of after-school programs and installed a number of mechanisms to coordinate, manage and support this system,” the report finds. “The AfterZone initiative…has shown that a campus model is feasible and indeed attracts youth in this age group.”
