After School Matters programs are provided through a network of public and private partnerships that include the City of Chicago, Chicago Public Schools, the Chicago Park District, the Chicago Public Library, community-based organizations (including cultural institutions, universities, and more) and independent instructors across the city.
After School Matters contracts with community-based organizations and independent instructors to develop and deliver hands-on, project-based programs. We empower local agencies to add programmatic capacity and support the expansion of high-quality programs for teens in communities where resources are scarce. We engage independent instructors, who are professionals in their fields, to share their knowledge and expertise by providing meaningful, real-world activities for young people.
