Nebraska is ranked a “Top 10 State for Afterschool”
The Afterschool Alliance’s America After 3PM survey, which is the largest national household survey ever conducted to gauge parent satisfaction and support for afterschool programs, recently put Nebraska as No. 8. in the nation. This top ten ranking stems largely from the high number of hours youth spend in programs and parents’ high satisfaction with their child’s afterschool program’s safe environment and overall quality. In fact, Nebraska is first in the nation with the number of hours that youth spend in after school programs—an average of nearly 10 hours per week.
