Intentionally linking participant goals, after school program elements, participation outcomes, and evaluation measures is critical to improving the effectiveness of after school programs. Priscilla Little presented this workshop, Redefining After School Programs to Support Student Achievement, at the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Summer Institute in Los Angeles, California (July 22–24, 2004), and Washington, D.C. (August 4–6, 2004). She provided an overview of current evaluation research, described elements of effective after school programs, and discussed a theory of change approach to designing and implementing effective after school programs. She drew information she presented in the workshop from Moving Toward Success: Framework for After-School Programs, as well as several of HFRP's Out-of-School Time Evaluation Snapshots.
