effects of after-school programs

Posted By: Stephanie Weisman on July 31, 2001
Very little research using experimental designs (thus showing "effects") has been completed on after-school programs to date.
However, if you'd like a book chapter on the topic, check out Marcia Chaiken's chapter in Elliott, Hamburg, and Williams (1998) "Violence in American Schools."
We've completed an evaluation of after-school programs in Maryland (many of the programs were in urban locations) and I'd be glad to send you a copy if you email me at sweisman@crim.umd.edu. Best of luck on your research paper.
