Victory breakdown: How Nebraska took a top 10 spot in afterschool

In The Afterschool Alliance’s 2014 America After 3PM report, Nebraska came in #8, handily outperforming 42 other states in the Expanded Learning Opportunities we offer our students once the bell rings. Here’s a visual breakdown of why Nebraska performs so well . . . and where we still have room to improve.

When it comes to what Nebraska does right, participants spend a lot of time in ELO programs, and parents are highly satisfied.

There’s still room for improvement in accessibility for those who need ELOs the most. Many low-income young people who could benefit are not taking advantage of Nebraska’s ELOs, either because there’s no program available, it’s cost prohibitive or some other reason. A higher percentage of Nebraska’s students are unsupervised after school than the national rate:

Nebraska Children and Families Foundation supports children, young adults and families at risk with the overall goal of giving our state's most vulnerable kids what they need to reach their full potential. We do this by building strong communities that support families so their children can grow up to be thriving, productive adults.
