Find a program

With an estimated 10 million youth in the U.S. enrolled in Out-of-School Time (OST) programs, providing a quality experience is essential for the well-being and development of the youth that participate in these programs. Out-of-School Time programs allow students to engage in areas of study and growth that may be limited during the school day, including physical activity, leadership development, civic engagement, and the arts. Overall, these experiences are proven to have positive impacts on the health, social and academic development of youth that extend into their adulthood.

Finding the right Out-of-School time program

While the type of Out-of-School Time program depends on the activities being sought and the activities provided, parents and guardians should ask questions upfront to ensure they are identifying the right Out-of-School Time program for their child(ren). 

 

Below is a list of ten questions that you can ask an Out-of-School Time Provider to help guide your decision when identifying which program is right for your child:

Does the program....  

  • Have written policies to protect the safety of youth? What are the health and safety protocols for COVID-19?

  • Have scheduled activities? Is it organized? Do activities usually begin and end on schedule? 

  • Continually offer new and positive learning experiences? Is it repetitive or does the program build as the youth participate?

  • Offer group and individual activities?

  • Create an environment that allows youth to feel a sense of belonging?

  • Have clear rules and expectations for youth? How does the Out-of-School Time staff handle conflicts, disagreements, or misunderstandings among the youth?

  • Offer different activities to engage youth or is the program “one size fits all?”  

  • Group youth of similar ages for activities or are youth of all ages together all the time?

  • Allow youth time to work on homework and/or provide educational learning support?

  • Offer regular communication with parents (i.e. email updates, parent meetings, one-on-one talks, etc.)?
