Making the Case for OST: The Perspectives of Parents, Educators, and Providers

With support from The Wallace Foundation, Learning Heroes’ latest research, “Out-of-School Time Programs: Paving the Way for Children to Find Passion, Purpose & Voice” reveals exciting new insights about the role of out-of-school time (OST) settings in helping our young people thrive.

Learning Heroes Senior Vice President David Park and Communications Manager Howard Winchester led an interactive discussion on this data and the accompanying Playbook for educators, providers, and advocates. Participants learned how the Playbook can be used to support organizations in using this important data. Participants also heard from state and local leaders on how they are making the case for OST.
