New Resource on OST Programming for Older Youth:

The CBASS After-School Apprenticeship Program Toolkit

The Collaborative for Building After-School Systems (CBASS) released a Toolkit featuring their After School Apprenticeship Program, an innovative out-of-school-time strategy for older youth. Launched in 2008, the After School Apprenticeship Program (ASAP) offers teens stipended eight-week apprenticeships where they learn a craft alongside a master practitioner, followed by six-week paid summer internships where students apply the skills that they have acquired working with younger kids as coaches, umpires, lifeguards and arts instructors.

Guided by the successful After School Matters (ASM) apprenticeship model, ASAP was developed by The After-School Corporation (TASC), Boston After School & Beyond and the Providence After School Alliance, in partnership with the Collaborative for Building After-School Systems (CBASS) and with technical assistance support from ASM.   Informed by lessons learned through the ASAP national initiative, the on-line toolkit contains strategies for developing a high-quality apprenticeship programs for high school youth across the country.  The toolkit is available through the CBASS website at:
