This metric tracks the number of young people enrolled in youth services per month. DFSS is committed to creating a premier out-of-school time system that provides young people the opportunity to participate in high-quality, safe, and structured programs. DFSS funds over 200 Out-of-School Time (OST) programs that serve youth between the ages of 6 to 18 years across the city of Chicago in five types of programs: Academic/Vocational Support and Enrichment; Science, Computer, and Technology; Arts and Culture; Sports, Fitness, Health, and Nutrition; and Innovative. Missing: This dataset does not include additional OST programs supported by other city agencies such as the Chicago Park District, Chicago Public Schools, the Chicago Housing Authority, etc.
