New Report: Quality Time After School

P/PV publishes new after school report
Public/Private Ventures has published Quality Time After School: What Instructors Can Do to Enhance Learning, aimed at improving the quality of out-of-school time activities and creating effective learning environments. Funded by The William Penn Foundation, the report identifies characteristics of after-school activities that are linked to youth engagement and learning across a rich diversity of out-of-school-time activity areas.
Drawing from surveys and interviews with more than 400 participants and instructors from five Philadelphia-based Beacon Centers, the report’s findings highlight the importance of two features of high-quality activities: good group management and positive adult support of learning. Building on analyses of over 50 detailed activity observations, as well as key lessons from past research, the report also suggests a road map for program operators and policymakers to create engaging learning environments in after-school programs.
The report can be found at http://www.ppv.org.
