Considering I work for an afterschool program, I am a slightly passionate about what I do.  It is very important that funding not be cut for after-school programs.  I have seen how vital these programs are for parents who have to work, for parents who cannot help their children with their homework, and for kids to develop social skills.  Please take a minute to go sign this petition.  After you have signed the petition, you can type a letter that will be e-mailed directly to your congressman/woman.
