Harvard Family Research Project, Harvard University
The Harvard Family Research Project (HFRP) Out-of-School Time Program Evaluation Database contains profiles of out-of-school time (OST) program evaluations. Its purpose is to provide accessible information about previous and current evaluations to support the development of high quality evaluations and programs in the OST field. Types of Programs Included in the Database Evaluations in the database meet the following criteria: (1) The evaluated program or initiative operates during out-of-school time; (2) The evaluation aims to answer a specific evaluation question or set of questions about a specific program or initiative; and (3) The evaluated program or initiative serves children between the ages of 5 and 19. Each profile contains detailed information about the evaluations as well as an overview of the OST program or initiative itself. Web links to actual evaluation reports, where available, are also provided, as are program and evaluation contacts.
