Strengthening, Supporting, and Sustaining the Out-of-School Time Workforce

This Practice Brief, the fourth in a periodic series published by the National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment (NCASE), was developed following a Peer Learning Community (PLC) designed to strengthen workforce systems to advance both individual career development and program quality. 

During the PLC, state teams shared best practices on using data to make decisions about how to increase access to professional development; supporting the workforce through technical assistance, recruitment, and retention strategies, leadership support; and creating and leveraging partnerships to move the work forward. The brief also highlights examples from participating states, including New Hampshire and New York.
