Out of School Time Matters: What Community Foundations Can Do.
This publication presents a tool for community foundations interested in developing out-of-school-time programs in their communities. It explores what is being learned about efforts to build quality systems and to challenge community foundations to help their communities sustain them. The accounts it presents were gathered through a survey of over 650 U.S. community foundations and from the work of community foundations that received grants from the Coalition of Community Foundations for Youth. The publication presents the following sections: "Out of School Time Matters to Youth, Families and Communities"; "Building Blocks of an Out of School Time-Friendly Community: Equity and Diversity"; "Quality"; "Financing"; "Policie: 21st Century Community Learning Centers"; "Partnerships";"Youth Engagement"; "Intermediary and Governance Entities"; and "Playing Many Roles: Going the Distance." Three appendices present a fact sheet on school-age children's out of school time, community foundations featured in this publication, and national organizations and local, state, and regional intermediaries.
