Out-of-school time (OST) providers offer a number of diverse opportunities for youth across New York City. With the success of OST programs come an increase in youth participation; how can providers ensure that with a growing demand, programs maintain quality and depth? What are some of the challenges that programs/organizations can face when replicating their work elsewhere?
Join us to learn how two different youth-focused funders—The Wallace Foundation and the Hive Digital Media Learning Fund in The New York Community Trust—have helped out-of-school-time providers replicate their programming.
