Public schools are playing a much larger role in providing after-school programs for teenagers, according to a new survey conducted by Junior Achievement.

For More Info
More information about the survey on after-school activities at public schools is available from Junior Achievement.

Of the 1,200 teenagers between the ages of 13 and 18 who were polled, more than 60 percent said they participate in after-school programs at their schools, instead of more traditional sites, such as the YMCA or a similar facility. About 8 percent attended programs in such centers, and about 18 percent attended programs provided by churches or other faith-based groups.

Darrell Luzzo, the senior vice president of education for JA Worldwide, said in a press release that the results demonstrate the “growing role of schools in the communities they serve.”
