Description

Children are living in high risk areas and are involved in gang activities after-school rather than being enrolled into program. Children from low-income families cannot afford after-school programs that provide academic assistants. Parents who have no education experience are unable to assist their children with homework help. A lack of adult involvement after school leads children to participate in risky behavior that get in the way of their learning process. After- School programs that are non-interactive with the children do not spark academic growth. Children are less likely to attend an after-school program that they deem as boring or that feels like a regular classroom lecture. Children’s peer influence will impact their attendance and participation in the program. Parents of the students must see the benefit of the after-school program and enroll their children. After-School programs must be resourced with the proper tool and necessities to assist the children. If children in these high-risk areas are not provided with the proper after-school programs needed to improve academic achievement, then they will face lower academic scores and higher chances of being involved in risky behaviors outside of school. Children with lower academic scores are more likely to drop out of school and less likely to be beneficial to our society and the economy. The researcher is studying what impact does the after-school program have on academic achievement with Jr. High youth in Berwyn IL. This study is aiming to help bring light to the benefits of funding after-school programs in all communities but in particular, high-risk communities. to find out what impact the after-school program has on academic achievement with Jr. high in Berwyn IL. In order to provide students with the best environment for learning and a safe zone to participate in activities that aid in academic achievement. The research will be carried out using a quantitative methodology to measure, an independent variable; the after-school program; and the dependent variable, academic achievement. The researcher is conducting this research to provide an understanding of weather after-school programs really improve a child’s learning skills. The research hopes to provide communities with the benefits of funding after-school programs for our youth and to provide awareness and assistance to current after-school programs that are not able to be an academic benefit for the youth that they are serving. The research will provide the social work field with information regarding how after-school programs can improve our society if orchestrated correctly. The information gathered from this study will be beneficial to the after- school program because it will entail information about what strategies work well with assisting children academically.
