Out of School Programs serve children and families during the critical times when children are not in school. While the largest number of programs focus on the time immediately after school hours, many of these programs may also serve students before the beginning of school hours. Some may also serve students into the evening for parents who are working evening hours.
These supports may include:
- Academic programs (e.g., reading or math-focused programs)
- Specialty programs (e.g., sports teams, STEM, arts enrichment)
- Multipurpose programs that provide an array of activities (e.g., Boys & Girls Club, YMCA)
