Research on successful out-of-school time programs repeatedly has found that the caliber of a program's staff is a critical feature of high-quality programs that achieve positive outcomes. Therefore, attracting, selecting, and retaining high-quality staff has become a major objective of out-of-school time programs. To expand what is known about staff selection, Child Trends recently conducted a review of existing research and collected data on this topic as part of a study on the role of frontline staff in the effective implementation of out-of-school time programs. This brief presents findings from that study and the research review, as well from other research about staff selection, and links these findings to effective strategies for recruiting and selecting frontline staff. The brief also describes these strategies. (Contains 1 note.)
