Out-of-School Time Research & Resources

OST Hub take 3 small

Welcome to the Youth Today Out-of-School Time (OST) Hub. The OST Hub, funded, in part, by a generous grant from the Robert Bowne Foundation, incorporates the Foundation’s philosophy of positive youth development, the importance of reflection and inquiry, a deep respect for youth workers as experts in their own right and of youth worker voices. In addition, the Hub reflects the Foundation’s belief in the critical importance of building bridges between research and practice.

The OST Hub focuses on topics that address relevant and critical issues in the out-of-school time (OST) field, many of them linked with current news stories reported in the digital and print newspaper Youth Today. Each topic area has its own page with links to free and downloadable articles, research, curricula and other program materials grounded in practice for in-depth exploration and deeper learning.

The OST Hub will continue to expand its topics, based on future input from the OST field. We welcome suggestions and accept submissions of research and articles for publication on the Hub. Contact Sara Hill with your ideas and submission queries: sarahill@youthtoday.org.
