Building A Strong Program

Building and sustaining a high-quality afterschool program will better ensure your program’s longevity. New programs don’t need to reinvent the wheel – they can utilize the wealth of resources already available. For existing programs, there are always opportunities to grow and innovate.

There are a few key components necessary to building and running a strong program:

  • High-quality, evidence-based curriculum and programming
  • Sustainable funding
  • Community partnerships
  • Measurement of program outcomes
  • Successful marketing of your program
  • High-quality staff

As the director or coordinator of a program, stay current on the new research and curriculum being offered to afterschool providers as well as funding and policy conversations; there are many opportunities for providers to get involved in these conversations to continue the positive momentum for the field of afterschool.
