Programme Background

The After School Game Changer (AS GC) is one of seven priority projects of the Western Cape Provincial Government. It focuses on increasing the opportunities for youth by providing quality After School Programmes for learners in no-and low-fee schools.  This includes academic support, sport, arts and life skills programmes. Through these programmes the initiative aims to reignite the flame of learning, improve educational outcomes, reduce school dropout and improve young people’s chances of becoming engaged and productive citizens.

There are over 900 After School Sites in the Western Cape operated by a number of partners: Government has a number of programmes run internally by departments; Government funds NGOs to deliver programmes; and NGOs self-fund to deliver programmes.

The Western Cape Government in partnership with ASSITEJ SA have come together as the Programme Convenors for the Creative Arts Training Programme for After School Practitioners to support Coaches delivering arts programmes.
