Not only do high quality out-of-school opportunities yield academic benefits, but they also contribute greatly to the overall health and welfare of children. According to a 2010 report by Child Trends (a nonprofit, nonpartisan research center that studies children at all stages of development) , "adolescents in high-quality (out-of-school) programs were more likely to avoid risky behavior, to have better performance in school, and to have greater social competence, over and above the control variables, than those in no program."
