In the rich variety of afterschool programs, it is challenging to determine common outcomes to which afterschool programs across the country can and should be held accountable. Participants will explore how to demonstrate impact and extend assessment efforts in order to support high quality programming and long term sustainability of afterschool programs. Examples will include the Partnership for Afterschool Education’s Afterschool Youth Outcomes Inventory, the ACT (Achieving, Connecting & Thriving) framework for college and career preparation developed by Boston Afterschool & Beyond, and the Virginia network’s focus on its development of youth outcomes for middle school youth.
