What Matters, What Works: Enhancing Achievement After School

After-school programs can improve participants’ literacy by providing intensive lessons several times a week and establishing strong bonds between instructors and participants, concludes a two-year studyRequires Adobe Acrobat Reader by New York City-based Public/Private Ventures, a public-policy-research organization.

The study was conducted on Communities Organizing Resources to Advance Learning, or CORAL, a Fresno, Calif.-based after-school initiative launched in 1999 that now includes more than 30 after-school programs in five California cities. California after-school programs will need an additional 10,000 to 20,000 workers to help meet the demand of developing and expanding after-school programs, the study says.
