The California Workforce Innovation Network (CalWIN) commissioned the California Employment Development Department’s Labor Market Information Division to conduct a 2012 labor market survey of the after-school workforce in collaboration with the California Department of Education (CDE), After School Division. The survey objective was to gather information that can be used to support CDE’s workforce initiatives for ASES and 21sts CCLC programs and their respective personnel. The survey uncovered data including workforce demographics (age, gender, ethnicity), staff education levels, and data regarding staff turnover. For many, the survey data challenged assumptions about the after-school workforce and can help inform hiring and staff development practices for programs across the state. One major finding is the workforce’s high level of education: workers with an associate degree or higher accounted for a 46 percent share and those with some college but no degree accounted for 33 percent.
