After School Matters is a nonprofit organization that offers Chicago teens innovative out-of-school activities. We are committed to providing teens with a safe, cooperative, and creative learning environment where they can grow and be fulfilled as dance artists; where they forge personal and professional relationships; and where they learn creative, interpersonal, and critical thinking skills necessary for mature citizens entering the workforce.
