Call for Afterschool Practices

Posted by on April 9, 2004

The Center for Youth Development and Policy Research at the Academy for Educational Development (AED) in Washington, D.C. is pleased to announce a national Call for Afterschool Practices. AED is looking for promising practices in any one of seven component areas:

-Community & Family Involvement
-Management & Administration
-Staffing & Training
-Research, Evaluation, & Knowledge Base
-Policy & Advocacy

Practices can be submitted by any one who works in the field of afterschool, and can be related to an afterschool program, an afterschool-related strategy or initiative, or a curriculum. All submissions will be reviewed by trained peer reviewers.

Those practices that are designated as promising will appear in the national database of promising practices featured on <a href=""></a>. Submitters will also receive an electronic copy of the PPAS logo to use on their websites and other publications. Submitters will receive detailed feedback from reviewers upon request.

AED is collecting practices as part of the Promising Practices in Afterschool (PPAS) System funded by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. For more information, please visit the following link: <a href=""> </a>. You may also send an email to with any questions or call the AED Center for Youth Development and Policy Research at 202-884-8267.

The deadline for submitting the first part of the application is May 7, 2004.

We now have over 100 promising practices in the searchable database. We invite all of you to take a look when you have a chance.
