About this grant

The Institute for Responsive Education is conducting a study of family engagement in afterschool programs to examine specific program objectives regarding family participation; consideration and accommodation of families’ needs in program planning and administration; and the scope, level and efficacy of participation in the program’s family engagement activities. This grant increase will enable the institute to carry out more comprehensive data collection at 10 to 15 sites across the nation, analyze the data and write in-depth case studies that examine family involvement in afterschool programs.
