The After School Project of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has released a new report entitled, “No Idle Hours: Making After-School Time Productive and Fun for Chicago Teenagers” by Tony Proscio. The report describes the development of After School Matters, one of three organizations funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s After School Project.

After School Matters provides paid apprenticeships in technology, arts, sports and communications to high school students. Students also receive coaching by practitioners. After School Matters is chaired by Chicago’s First Lady, Maggie Daley, and has a commitment from the city’s top leadership.
