Afterschool Programs: Inspiring Students with a Connected Learning Approach

The Afterschool Alliance recently released a report, "Afterschool Programs: Inspiring Students with a Connected Learning Approach," that discusses how afterschool programs can help bridge divides in access to additional learning opportunities, access to caring mentors, and access to resources and peer networks that can excite young people about the acquisition of knowledge. The report also dives into connected learning - the intentional linkage of one's interests, peer groups, and academics - and how it capitalizes on the benefits of all three areas to create a learning experience that is both powerful and enduring. Included in the report are examples of afterschool programs that are offering connected learning opportunities, as well as key takeaways from programs.
