"AfterZone:" Outcomes for Youth Participating in Providence's Citywide After-School System
Kauh, Tina J.
Public/Private Ventures
This report presents findings from a two-year quasi-experimental evaluation of the "AfterZone"--a citywide system-building effort in Providence, Rhode Island, that aims to provide high-quality, accessible out-of-school-time services to middle school youth. The AfterZone model is unique in that it is built on a network of "neighborhood campuses" anchored by one or two middle schools; this structure provides youth the opportunity to participate in sports, arts and skills-enhancing programs in both community- and school-based settings. The report summarizes the patterns of youth participation in the AfterZone during the two-year period (in terms of amount, breadth and engagement); examines the benefits youth experience from participating after one and two school years; and presents implications for funders, policymakers and program leaders interested in implementing their own citywide out-of-school-time system. Appended are: (1) Measures; (2) Attrition; (3) Analyses; (4) Effect Sizes; (5) Accounting for Baseline Group Differences; (6) Subgroup Analyses; (7) Two-Year AfterZone Participants; (8) Participation Analyses; and (9) Correlations Among Dimensions of Participation. (Contains 33 tables, 9 figures and 85 footnotes.) [For the "AfterZone: Outcomes for Youth Participating in Providence's Citywide After-School System. Executive Summary", see ED522989.]
