In April 2012, the California Employment Development Department's (EDD) Labor Market Information Division (LMID) partnered with the California Department of Education (CDE) to distribute the 2012 After-School Program Survey to over 4,000 After School Education and Safety (ASES) and 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) programs. The survey objective was to gather information that can be used to support CDE's workforce initiatives for ASES and CCLC programs and their respective personnel. The initiative's primary goals are to address the current and anticipate the future occupational needs of after-school programs and support the career development goals of program personnel.
This report provides readers with a snapshot of the general findings from the 2012 After-School Program Survey. The results presented are inclusive of information from all respondents to the survey. The all respondent's data represents the responses for all of the programs that responded to a particular question; regardless of how many people were employed there. In the 2012 After-School Program Survey: Final Report of Results additional information is provided based on the number of workers employed in a program.
