Out-of-School Time: Leveraging Higher Education for Quality

Research has shown that just as good teachers correlate to children's success in school, so too are out-of-school time staff integral to making after-school an enriching educational space. And as institutions of higher education (IHEs) are essential to the education system for schooling, so too may they have a role in preparing and training the highly diverse workforce of after-school.

Institutions of higher education provide a developed infrastructure for education and professional development of students in the current and future OST workforce. The OST arena offers an educational space for practice, research, and diverse methodologies.

This paper by TASC and Foundations, Inc., explores why and how partnerships between institutions of higher education and the out-of-school time field can strengthen the quality of children's educational opportunities beyond the school day.
