The workshop was organized by the Board on Children, Youth, and Families and its Forum on Adolescence of the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine, with funding from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.

The workshop coincided with release of the Packard Foundation’s fall 1999 issue of The Future of Children, entitled “When School Is Out.” Focusing on after-school programs, the journal provided some context for the workshop, providing a backdrop for discussing the importance of afterschool programs, the types of programs that exist across the country, and the policy climate that surrounds after-school programs.

Although this summary draws on “When School Is Out” to supplement specific statements made at the workshop, neither the workshop nor this summary report incorporated the level of detail or scope of information contained in that publication. This volume draws on presentations and discussion at the workshop. Of necessity, it reflects the particular emphases of the workshop presentations as well as specific statements made by presenters during the workshop.
