December 02, 2009

Join us for a Webinar on Monday, December 7, 2009

Join researchers and local leaders to explore Investments in Building Citywide Out-of-School-Time Systems, a study of the investments that six cities—Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Denver, New York City and Seattle—have made in building OST systems. The study, commissioned by The Wallace Foundation from The Finance Project and Public/Private Ventures, is designed to help inform OST system-building efforts across the country by helping stakeholders understand the potential roles and functions of OST systems and the range of resources needed to build a solid infrastructure. The webinar will present lessons for the OST field and highlight the work of local initiatives focused on quality, data and access, and financing.
