Damian  is a bright 4th grader who enjoys school and learning.  He participates in one of the afterschool programs that U4C’s Road to Quality program helped establish.  Ever since he began attending the program, his grades have improved and he looks forward to going to school and his afterschool program!

Without these high-quality afterschool programs, thousands of children are home alone until their families return from work and have a significantly increased risk of experimenting with crime, drugs, alcohol and other risky behaviors.  These programs also help children improve their academic performance and relationships with peers.
