Addressing Equity in Out-of-School Time

The disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic coincide with increased attention to issues of racial injustice. Federal support, including funding, is available to rebuild early childhood and Out-of-School time (OST) care, to address inequities that have historically diminished opportunities for children and families.

This research brief, “Addressing Equity in Out-of-School Time” is the fifth in a periodic series published by the National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment (NCASE) to build awareness of research and promising practices in the field of school-age child care. With multiple resources and highlighting the work of state and Tribal programs, the brief supports building and sustaining equitable systems and practices for OST.
