The city’s Philly311 mobile app has a new feature to help Philadelphians locate after-school programs.

Get the free app for BlackBerry, iOS or Android

Built by Code for Philly co-organizer Chris Alfano, the widget won a city contest that challenged technologists to develop a feature for the Philly311 app. The app uses data from the After School Activities Partnership.

Users can search for programs by location, grade level, hours of operation and type (e.g., chess, debate, drama).
