Out-of-School-Time Programs | Paving the Way for Children to Find Passion, Purpose & Voice

Research
With support from The Wallace Foundation, Learning Heroes and its partner Edge Research conducted qualitative and quantitative research to better understand how parents, teachers, and out-of-school time (OST) providers perceive the value of OST programs in supporting children’s social, emotional, and academic development. The research highlights the unique role OST programs play in youth development.  This new data can be used to inform communications, policies, and programs.

Parents 2018: Going Beyond Good Grades, Parents 2017: Unleashing Their Power & Potential, and Hearts & Minds are nationally representative surveys of K-8 parents.
