Webinar Recording: Foundations for Young Adult Success: A Developmental Framework

On July 23, 2015, Afterschool Alliance hosted a webinar with researchers from the University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research to discuss the findings of UCCCSR's newly released report, Foundations for Young Adult Success: A Developmental Framework, funded by The Wallace Foundation. The report provides evidence from child/youth development, cognitive science, psychology, and learning theory that educators, out-of-school time practitioners, policymakers, and funders can use to ground their work in a firm understanding of important goals for human development. It also aims to help schools and OST professionals think about how to design adult practices and youth experiences to reach those goals. Speakers on the webinar included Nina Sonenberg, Communications Officer, The Wallace Foundation, Jenny Nagaoka, Deputy Director, Consortium on Chicago School Research, Stacy Ehrlich, Senior Research Analyst, Consortium on Chicago School Research, and Saskia Traill, Vice President for Policy & Research, TASC.
