Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELOs) Fact Sheet

Studies show the positive impact and value of expanded learning opportunities (ELOs), including high-quality after-school, summer learning and extended day or year programs in school and community settings that reshape when, where and how learning occurs. This fact sheet by the New York State Afterschool Network highlights primary findings of empirical research on after-school programs and other ELOs and shows that they:

  • Improve student achievement;
  • Promote physical health and wellness;
  • Support working families;
  • Help prevent crime, drug use and teen pregnancy;
  • Support a wide range of youth populations; and
  • Are wise investments.
