Loosli, Saren Eyre
As Corporation for National Service members become increasingly involved in out-of-school time programs for youth, the need for information about effective practices for directing programs and working with young people has increased. The purpose of this manual is to help these programs enhance the quality of out-of-school time programs for young people aged 5 to 14. The manual contains ideas and suggestions, resource lists, tip sheets, and examples of successful programs. The following chapters are included: (1) "Exploring the Facts about Children's Out-of-School Time"; (2) "Understanding Basic Standards for a Quality Out-of-School Time Program"; (3) "Training Members and Volunteers To Work in Out-of-School Time Programs"; (4) "Understanding Service Learning"; (5) "Tip Sheets: Simple Ideas To Address Important Out-of-School Topics"; (6) "Training Materials on Important Out-of-School Time Issues"; (7) "Program Profiles"; and (8) "Connecting to Additional Out-of-School Time and School-Age Child Care." The program profiles section describes Corporation for National Service programs involved in out-of-school activities for children and youth. (SLD)
