New Research and Afterschool


New Research-to-Results series launched today from Child Trends:

A new resource for designing, expanding, refining, improving, and evaluating out-of-school time programs. This is must-read material for program providers, policy makers, funders, and the media. Fact sheets, research briefs, and practitioner insight reports provide critical information on new research, promising evaluation and practice techniques, and basic information to help service providers and others use research and evaluation to improve programs for youth. These materials will be disseminated over the next four years, through Child Trends’ newest initiative, Research-to-Results.
