Three Out-of-School Time Publications by Harvard Family Research Project

"We edited the Spring 2005 issue of the "New Directions for Youth Development" journal which focuses on Participation in Youth Programs: Enrollment, Attendance, and Engagement. The issue unpacks the construct of participation in out-of-school time programming, posing a three-part equation: participation = enrollment + attendance + engagement. It draws on the latest research and evaluation literature and provides research-based strategies on how to define, measure, study, and increase participation.

We also have an article in the April 2005 issue of "The Prevention Researcher" journal entitled "Engaging Adolescents in Out-of-School Time Programs: Learning What Works." It examines both the incentives and barriers that affect adolescents' participation in out-of-school time programs. Read the abstract or purchase the article or issue at:

Finally, we also have an article entitled, "Finding the Right Hook: Strategies for Attracting and Sustaining Participation in After-School Programs" in the May 2005 issue of "The School Administrator" magazine. It offers promising recruitment and retention strategies to school administrators seeking to boost participation rates in their school-based after school programs."
