NCASE Resource Library
The National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment (NCASE) has developed a number of resources focused on addressing equity in Out-of-School Time.
When the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted in-person schooling during the 2020-2021 academic year, children participated in school from the classroom, from home, and from out-of-school time (OST) programs on remote learning days.
This brief highlights the benefits of participation in 21st CCLCs based on their statewide evaluations. Benefits include: promoting academic growth; keeping kids connected and building relationships; engaging, inspiring, and motivating students; and preparing youth for life after high school.
This issue brief focuses on the importance of taking a comprehensive approach to wellness that includes attention to social emotional health as well as healthy eating and physical activity.
