Out-of-School Time Programs: Paving the Way for Children to Find Passion, Purpose, and Voice

This slide deck presents research on how parents, teachers, and Out-of-School Time (OST) providers perceive the value of OST in children’s social, emotional, and academic development. A companion toolkit, available in Spanish too, includes a video of research highlights and a playbook for educators, providers, and advocates to communicate the benefits of OST programs and develop policies that make these opportunities more accessible


There’s also a webinar called Making the Case for OST: The Perspectives of Parents, Educators, and Providers
