Successful Youth. Quality Programs. That’s Sprockets.
Sprockets is a network of many different after-school and summer programs in Saint Paul that is helping youth be successful by getting them involved in quality programs that spark their interests.
There’s more to after school and summer experiences than meets the eye – they play an important role in helping young people thrive.
Research shows that children and youth who take part in quality after-school or summer programs:
- Attend school more often
- Do better in school
- Exhibit fewer behavior challenges
- Increase their physical activity
- Develop more self-confidence
- Build leadership and teamwork skills … All while having fun

In order for after-school and summer programs to help kids succeed, they have to be high quality. And Sprockets is here to help them be the best they can be.
Surprising research also reveals that it’s better for youth to do nothing at all than to participate in low-quality programs.
