Engaging Families in Out-of-School Time Programs Toolkit

This toolkit summarizes best practice tools and strategies for fostering family engagement in Out-of-School Time (OST) programs. Developed by BOSTnet years ago based on a four-year initiative aimed at improving youth outcomes through family involvement, this classic tool is still relevant today. It offers a way to self-assess program level of family engagement, as well as strategies and tips for developing and implementing an action plan.
