Over 1.5 million students are at risk as Congress debates eliminating $1 billion from vital after-school programs. At a time when an additional 20 million students want to be in programs but none are available it is more important than ever that we inform our policy makers about the many reasons these programs help our children succeed in school and in life. Take a moment to use the power of social media to join this effort and be the champions our students are depending on.
