Do high levels of extracurricular activities help or hinder child development? (2010)

This study uses data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY) to examine rates of extracurricular participation for Canadian children and youth aged six to 17 years.

The authors found that 86 percent of children and youth participated in at least one extracurricular activity. Overall, participation seemed to benefit children and youth’s development, particularly in the area of pro-social behaviour.
