Connecting out-of-school time to classroom success among young black males
New report: Connecting out-of-school time to classroom success among young black males in D.C.
“Building bridges: Connecting out-of-school time to classroom success among school-age black males in the District of Columbia” takes a look at policies and practices afterschool programs can adopt to best support the success of young black males in D.C.
This report identifies specific mechanisms by which out-of-school time (OST) programs can build effective bridges to encourage and affirm academic success among Black male students. Conceptually, we believe that existing OST programs that focus on workforce development, healthy lifestyles, safety and structure, and strong families can incorporate key elements that will influence Black males’ adjustment to school.
