Award Date: Mar 1, 2016
End Date: Jul 15, 2016
After-school programs are common in the United States. As with any educational program, after-school programs come with associated costs in terms of funding and personnel resources. As the number of programs increases, there is a growing need to understand the benefits or “return on investments” related to after-school programs.
This project is designed to (a) conduct a comprehensive review of the research literature related to return on investment studies conducted on after-school programs, (b) produce a written document representing a synthesis of the findings from the literature review, and (c) generate additional documents for distribution (e.g., fact sheet, bibliography).
