America After 3PM: A Game-Changing Summer -  Wednesday, May 19th @ 11am Mountain Time

Join the Afterschool Alliance on Wednesday, May 19, at 1 p.m. EDT for a virtual briefing for media and the field on new nationwide data on children’s summer experiences, including which children have access to enriching, engaging summer enrichment programs and which children are missing out. The report, "Time for a Game-Changing Summer, With Opportunity and Growth for All of America’s Youth," provides insights into what the summers of 2019 and 2020 looked like for children and youth in the United States. It is based on responses from nearly 30,000 U.S. families to a household survey examining the summer of 2019, as well as surveys of parents and providers that shed light on how the pandemic shaped young people’s summer experiences in 2020.  

The summer months can be a time of opportunity, when students can form friendships, explore new subjects, engage with mentors, and be active and outdoors. Commissioned by the Afterschool Alliance and conducted by Edge Research, the new study reveals significant inequities in terms of summer opportunities in recent years. It can inform the design of 2021 summer experiences and how new federal funds allocated to summer and other out-of-school-time programs can help young people re-engage, recharge, and rebound from the pandemic.
