Abstract

"City officials are well positioned to support the development of strong partnerships with key sectors of the community to increase the number and quality of out-of-school time programs. This guide highlights three key strategies that mayors and other city leaders can use to promote partnerships and build public will in support of out-of-school time programs: Engage and involve a broad set of partners to take full advantage of all community resources; Keep out-of-school time on the public agenda; and Lead efforts by city, school and community leaders to establish a common set of outcomes and a shared vision for out-of-school time. In each of these areas, the guide describes specific actions that municipal leaders can take in their communities and presents brief city profiles to illustrate how they have been used around the country. These strategies, when implemented effectively, build upon and reinforce each other in ways that can sustain momentum and lead to the development of a comprehensive out-of-school time system."
