TOOLKITS
BOSTNet Engaging Families in Out-of-School Time Programs Toolkit

Through the 4-year Engaging Families Initiative, BOSTnet worked with after school
programs to develop tools and strategies to help you improve how families are involved in programs and in the success of their children. These strategies were evaluated by the Intercultural Center for Research in Education (INCRE) at UMASS as powerful tools for promoting self-assessment of program practices, and as feasible and practical strategies for enhancing parent involvement in after school. This Toolkit summarizes best practice tools and strategies from the Engaging Families Initiative.
