After school programs

The importance of after school programs:

I'm sure we have all seen it in our own neighborhoods and social circles. The once stay-at-home Mom or Dad now has to give that job up and head back to the more traditional work force due to the current economic situation. Who suffers immediately, the children, of course. This is not a decision easily made by the family but a necessary one to help the family bridge these hard financial times.

So where does that leave the child? Well, simply, they are left with before and after care at school or another location. Now, more than ever, there is a serious need for quality after school programs and strong and generous people to over see them.

There are at least a few such schools in the DC metro area that are excelling in this particular venture. They have strong Mom's and Dad's volunteering their time and energy to allow the students at the school to reap the benefit of quality after school enrichment opportunities that range from learning a musical instrument to having cooking lessons.

These children are already staying after school and these brave parents have taken on the task of making sure the "extra time" these children spend bridging the gap between home and school is the most productive it can be.

I applaud these Mom's and Dad's who all have their own jobs to do and families to raise, etc. yet find the time to see an importance in making an effort in their community for the good of all.
