Based on a survey of parents or guardians of school-aged children living in a rural community, this blog provides insights into the current afterschool and summer program landscape in rural America, in particular the significant and rising unmet demand in rural communities.
This blog by the National Institute on Out-of-School Time highlights what their research staff learned this past summer about high-quality practices in virtual programs based on conducting observations of more than 200 hours of online academic and general enrichment programming. The focus is on tips for activity design, youth engagement, and technology.
The Afterschool Alliance has developed an easy-to-use searchable database on evidence-based impacts of afterschool and summer programs.
This website provides links to all issues of Afterschool Matters, a national, peer-reviewed journal aimed at practitioners who develop and manage youth programs, as well as researchers and policymakers. The journal is published two to three times a year; each journal is 48-60 pages. Articles on almost any topic related to school-age care are available here.
