New YouthLearn Afterschool & Technology section

YouthLearn is pleased to announce the launch of a new section of our website called "Afterschool & Technology." In this new section, we explore how afterschool programs can promote content-rich learning in fun and creative ways with the aid of various technology tools. The section contains promising afterschool programming strategies from eight dynamic initiatives around the country. Each has effectively utilized technology to foster academic learning, while still promoting youth-led, project-based methods.

Selected programs include:

- After-School Learning Center, Sunset Neighborhood Beacon Center
- Girls Creating Games, ETR Associates
- After School Computer Labs Project, Missouri 4-H Youth Development
- ECHOES Program, Heads on Fire
- Project ACCELERATE, The Children’s Museum of Houston
- Spaghetti Book Club
- Robotics Program - Apollo’s Vision Club, Inc.
- Long Beach YMCA Youth Institute

We hope that the ideas showcased in the new Technology & Afterschool section can spark discussion in our community and elsewhere on how best to promote powerful learning. Special thanks to each of the organizations who gave of their time and expertise.

You can access the new section off our home page or at

The development of this site was supported in part by a grant from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. Additional support was provided by the National Partnership for Quality Afterschool Learning at Southwest Educational Development Laboratory.
