Several local authorities run After School Programmes at municipal libraries and sports facilities. The WCG has partnered with some local authorities such as the City of Cape Town and the Drakenstein Municipality.

The After School Game Changer is working to increase the participation of learners from no- and low-schools in after school activities, ensuring regular attendance by significantly improving the attractiveness and quality of such programmes for learners. By 2019 the target is to get 112,000 learners participating regularly in quality programmes – 20% of learners in no- and low-fee schools. This is a joint Game Changer in partnership with the City of Cape Town and a number of NGO’s.
