Hanging Out: Community-Based After-School Programs for Children


There has been a huge increase in government and foundation funding for after-school programs, but there is very little published research on processes and outcomes (what is available is single-program analysis, often in the form of reports to funding agencies). This collection provides data on the operation of many programs and takes community contexts into account, showing what children actually like and how programs can attract and retain them.
