WHAT THIS MAP DOES

  • Provides Information: Shows program location, contact information, school districts served,county, days of operation, licensing status, ages served, funding source, snacks and meals, and activities offered. NOTE: This information is self-reported by programs. OAN maintains the map, but relies on programs to provide the data that populates it.
  • Illustrates Gaps: Counties that have not reported data illustrate gaps in reporting and/or service.
  • Demonstrates Opportunity: 431,000 of Ohio’s children do not participate in an Afterschool program. This map shows that there is an enormous opportunity to serve more children in our state.

THE STATE OF AFTERSCHOOL IN OHIO REPORT

As a companion to the data map, OAN is excited to release the State of Afterschool in Ohio Report. This one page report talks about the high need for Afterschool in Ohio, as well as highlights some statistics from the juvenile crime and violence, food insecurity and career readiness lenses. View the report HERE.

Other key findings that shaped the development of this report include:

Ohio is investing in our youth because our Governor and our legislators believe that all youth in our state deserve to reach their full potential as they define it! With House Bill 166, passed in July 2019, Ohio invested $675 million to help districts and schools support their students’ academic achievement through mental health counseling, wraparound services, mentoring and Afterschool programs. Read more HERE.

However, the demand for Afterschool in Ohio still remains high. The Afterschool Alliance reports that for every youth in an Afterschool program there are two more who would participate if a program was available. In Ohio over 431,000 youth are home alone every day unsupervised. Read more HERE.
