HOUSTON — Studies show that children who participate in healthy programs outside of school improve their academic performance and overall personal development. 

Great Day Houston host, Deborah Duncan, sat down with Juliet Stipech and Brandon Denton from the Mayor's Office of Education to talk about the Out 2 Learn Initiative. Out 2 learn is a website created to help connect parents to these after school programs. The website creates easy access to information on out-of-school programs in the Greater Houston Area. Programs are listed by times, fees, locations, and interests. For more information, visit
