An explosion of new students in Bismarck means after school programs need more help.
So far there are 163 more students than last fall enrolled in the Bismarck School District.
Many K-6 grade students not only attend school during the day, but also take part in After School Programs.
Cindy Gum is the coordinator for BLAST, which stands for Bismarck's Life After School Program and says she's in desperate for workers.
"More students is more childcare needed in the Bismarck area and so I mean we have about 150 students on a waiting list right now and 150 kids if we can try to get them all in our program that's 15 to 20 more workers we need just to get those off the waiting list," BLAST Coordinator Cindy Gums said.
Employees have to be 16 years old and work from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Gum says it's a great way for high schoolers or even retired teachers to work with kids.
"We're right at the school and we're there three to six, so if they get off work at five they've got time to get there pick up their kids, they know they're in a safe place, they know they're being provided for," Gums said.
