Philadelphians will soon be able to search a database of after school programs on the city’s 311 mobile app, according to an announcement.

The widget, built by Jarv.us Innovations cofounder Chris Alfano, won the city’s Philly311 Widget Contest. With social media consultant Faye Anderson, Alfano built a similar tool, an after school program aggregator, that won first place at this summer’s Random Hacks of Kindness.

Data about the after school programs will come from the After School Activities Partnership.
