Local nonprofit partners
Research shows that time outside of the classroom is nearly as important to a young person’s development and learning as traditional school time. Out-of-school time learning, or expanded learning, can help to address gaps and inequities in our traditional school systems and has proven to help address the pandemic’s impacts on learning and social-emotional well-being.
