About this grant

This grant will support ExpandED Schools to develop a common measurement framework for afterschool programs to track children and youth across a range of youth outcomes, including academic, as well as social and emotional skills such as creative thinking, teamwork, self-regulation, and work ethic. The grantee will work with afterschool leaders and statewide afterschool networks to: 1) implement common youth outcome measures; 2) build capacity of participating cities and states to measure youth outcomes; and 3) inform policy and practice through national dissemination of lessons learned aimed at building understanding among leaders in the education, out-of-school time, and other relevant fields.
