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.

This resource is also available in Spanish.
