“The power of using data to drive decision-making has become a mainstay in most industries, and in recent years has begun to take hold in the afterschool programming space, where data can help decision makers evaluate the quality of a program, as well as shed light on efforts to meet a community’s broader goals to serve youth. Regularly measuring youth outcomes becomes especially critical, advocates say, when it comes to ensuring there is equitable access to programming and that the programs are supporting underrepresented youth.”
