Participation during Out-of-School Time: Taking a Closer Look. Out-of-School Time Policy Commentary #6
Yohalem, Nicole; Wilson-Ahlstrom, Alicia; Pittman, Karen
Forum for Youth Investment
This commentary examines the issue of youth participation in out-of-school time programs from two perspectives. It begins broadly with a youth-centered lens, by asking how children and youth spend their discretionary time and how time use patterns relate to outcomes. After painting a picture of the full out-of-school time landscape, this commentary looks specifically at structured program participation and provides partial answers to some basic questions: Who participates? How much? Why or why not? In closing, it draws on the information collected to reflect on policy issues related to participation. (Contains 30 endnotes.)
