A Year in Review. 
2015-2016 Annual Report: 

As 2016 comes to a close, we are celebrating the exciting progress we have seen for our students and community. Students participating in Dallas Afterschool supported programs performed significantly better in math than peers at similar schools and of similar backgrounds across DISD, the After the Bell Alliance is addressing the need for a greater number of affordable, quality out of school time opportunities for the students and families who need them most, and Wonder Kits have continued to provide staff and students with meaningful hands-on learning experiences. Thank you for all that you do to support this important work – with many worthy organizations throughout our community, we are honored when you choose to invest in Dallas Afterschool.

In particular, two Dallas Afterschool program partners, Readers 2 Leaders and Jubilee Park & Community Center, helped students GAIN 2-3 months of reading achievement this past summer, in contrast to the national average of 2+ months LOSS of reading proficiency among low-income students.
