After School Matters 


After School Matters is a nonprofit organization that offers Chicago teens free high-quality, out-of-school time opportunities in the arts, science, sports, technology and communications. We primarily serve Chicago Public Schools high school students.


Our hands-on, project-based programs introduce teens to a variety of careers, while helping them develop marketable job skills. After School Matters partners with Chicago Public Schools, the Chicago Public Library, and the Chicago Park District to provide program opportunities at safe locations within neighborhoods. We also collaborate with more than 100 community organizations across Chicago.
