T-Mobile Huddle Up Survey

"The first-ever national T-Mobile Huddle Up Afterschool Survey finds that 90 percent of parents say having a safe, positive place for their child after school will keep their child safe and away from criminal activity. The national study of 603 parents, launched in partnership with the Afterschool Alliance, finds that nearly one in four parents would be willing to start paying to keep their afterschool programs open, and some parents who already pay are willing to spend more. Nearly half of parents say they would rally to encourage federal, state and local officials to invest in safe, positive afterschool places.

Key findings from the T-Mobile Huddle Up survey:

89 percent of parents say having a safe, positive place for their child to hang out after school will improve their child's well-being.
82 percent say having a safe, positive place for their child to hang out after school will help their child perform better in school.
80 percent said that their child needs a safe, positive place to go to afterschool.
82 percent said that their child wants a safe, positive place to go to afterschool."
