The next update to the out-of-school time section of our website will be in December when we will add a bibliography of all of the out-of-school time program evaluations that we are currently tracking. There are about 200 programs in the bibliography so we hope this will be a useful resource for you. If you’d like to be notified by email when the bibliography is available, please sign up for our OST updates email at:
