Promising Practices in Afterschool
Client: Charles Stewart Mott Foundation
We have received four continuous grants to advance the afterschool field’s knowledge of what works in afterschool programming—and, more importantly, why it works.
Learning Point Associates created a rubric of the elements of promising afterschool programming based on research regarding quality afterschool programs. We also solicited nominations of promising practices from the field. Through dissemination of these practices, we enable programs to use these lessons to build their own quality programs.
Each grant has identified a specific element of quality programming. The initial grant focused on approaches program managers can take to identify the ultimate goals for the program and make programming decisions based on those goals. Additional grants have concentrated on promising practices in academic enrichment programs and complementary learning in afterschool programs.
