Grantmakers and thought leaders on out-of-school time: Survey & interview report


Last year, Grantmakers for Education's Out-of-School Time (OST) Funder Network, as part of its strategic planning process, gathered insights from a diverse group of grantmakers, practitioners, researchers, educators, and advocates on questions such as: what is the status of the OST field? What progress have we made and what are the key challenges that remain? Where should grantmakers direct limited philanthropic resources? How can and should the OST field inform and contribute to education reform efforts? What we learned provided essential context for the development of the network's strategic plan, but we did not want to hold onto the data for our own purposes only. This brief report shares our results more broadly with stakeholders in the out-of-school time and education reform communities. We created this document with the hope that, by identifying several key issues that arose in survey and interview results, we can help spark productive conversation and action toward providing young people with positive, productive learning experiences in and out of school.
