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.  

Watch the recording here: 

  • The benefits and challenges of spreading programs across multiple sites and/or to other organizations
  • Signs that an organization or program is poised—or not—for replication
  • Arguments for adapting or "remixing" aspects of a program, rather than replicating it wholesale
  • Best practices for evaluating replication-focused grants, and understanding the impact of local adaptations


Designed for

All interested funders.
