Out-of-School Time Toolkit
This toolkit is a resource for United Ways and their community partners who seek to deepen their out-of-school time efforts so that more young people have access to quality programs. Over the past three years, United Way Worldwide, with the ongoing support of jcpenney, has provided grants and technical assistance to a number of local United Ways to help them strengthen out-of-school time systems in their communities. This toolkit builds on those efforts and leverages the work of previous United Way grantees—particularly their lessons learned, tools, and resources focused on collaboration and coalition building, engaging key stakeholders, and developing and communicating strategies to improve youth access to high quality programs in their communities.
