To provide Chicago public high school teens opportunities to explore and develop their talents, while gaining critical skills for work, college and beyond. We achieve our mission by: Designing and delivering high quality, hands-on, project-based apprenticeship programs in a variety of content areas, including the arts, science, sports, technology and communications. Engaging skilled professionals as instructors who support teens’ growth and development in an intentional and meaningful way. Aligning and maximizing the resources of an extensive network of public-private partnerships to support coordinated and sustainable investment in youth development through school- and community-based programming. Focusing on continuous quality improvement, data-driven and cost-effective decisions, strengthening skills to encourage improved academic outcomes, and positive impacts for teens, schools and communities we serve.
After School Matters provides Chicago high school teens with high quality, out-of-school time opportunities to explore and develop their talents while gaining critical skills for work, college and beyond. Over the past two decades, more than 200,000 teens have participated in our hands-on, project-based after-school and summer programs in the arts, science, sports, technology and communications. Programs take place at locations throughout the city including Chicago public high schools, Chicago Park District and Chicago Public Library locations, community-based organizations and Downtown at the Gallery 37 Center for the Arts.
