About this grant

This grant will support the American Institutes for Research to partner with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Minnesota Department of Education, and the National Institute on Out-of-School Time at Wellesley College to complete a study that explores how high quality afterschool programs can promote literacy development for elementary school children. This study will also explore the role that social and emotional learning may play in supporting the development of literacy-related skills.
