Measuring Youth Development: How Out-of-School Time Programs Collect and Use Data

Assessing an organization’s efforts can be a first step to improving them. At youth programs, good data can mean better decisions on staff training, student activities, and other key matters. This report from the Wallace Foundation looks at how afterschool, summer, and other out-of-school-time (OST) programs gauge their work and impact. It also examines the obstacles they face in doing so. In addition to surveying these common challenges, the report offers recommendations for how to remove those obstacles. It is based in large part on interviews and surveys of staff from OST programs that experts in the OST field recommended for study.

This report shares early lessons learned by these five OST organizations, which were documented by a two-and-a-half-year study. It provides a preliminary roadmap for multipurpose OST organizations seeking to increase the quality of their arts programming and close gaps in access to high-quality arts programming.

The Hechinger Report has gathered those into an interactive College Welcome Guide, to help you assess how receptive colleges are to students from a variety of backgrounds, and to map state laws that affect college students.
