Gender informed programming: Examples of current practices at five afterschool programs


This brief summarizes how five afterschool programs—serving elementary age children and representing diverse geographic regions, settings, and populations served—view their roles and contributions to provide gender-aware afterschool programming. For an overview of the study, see the related brief entitled “Providing an Essential Service: An Overview of Afterschool Program Support of Children’s Social-Emotional, Behavioral, and Physical Health During Middle Childhood.” Findings were gathered through interviews with multiple program staff and observations of activities during the two-day site visits to answer the following: - Is afterschool program staffing gender balanced? - What evidence is there of gender aware programming?
