Document Number: 5926The Growth in After-School Programs and Their Impact - This paper provides statistics on the rapid growth since the late 1990s in after-school and youth development programs and reasons for these programs’ sudden expansion. The researcher suggests components of “model” programs, and summarizes the findings from high-quality research studies on the impact of well-designed after-school and youth development programs. The report also considers the cost of such programs and a variety of implementation issues, from program location to outcomes measurement. (Rob Hollister, The Brookings Institution, February 2003)...
