Webinar: The Value of Out-of-School Time Programs

July 26, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Free Webinar 
Thursday, July 26, 2018
2:00-3:15 PM EDT

Recently, longstanding federal funding for after-school programs has come under scrutiny. In response, the RAND Corporation issued a report, “The Value of Out-of-School Time Programs,” that provides an overview of the rationale for publicly funding Out-of-School Time (OST) programs, outlines a model for linking different categories of OST programs to likely outcomes, and suggests implications and recommendations for policymakers, funders, OST program leaders and researchers.

This report, commissioned by The Wallace Foundation, offers key insights for providers, policymakers and funders. Join Every Hour Counts for a webinar on Thursday, July 26, 2:00-3:15 pm ET to learn about key topics, such as:

  • How we can measure effectiveness of programs, depending on the program’s goals for outcomes
  • The connection between attendance and student outcomes, and how providers can use this to their advantage
  • The role of policymakers and funders in prioritizing funding for programs designed to address outcomes most crucial to the communities they serve.

Presenter: Jennifer McCombs, Director and Senior Policy Researcher, RAND Corporation

This webinar is presented in partnership with the Forum for Youth Investment.
