In this webinar hosted by Every Hour Counts, participants will discuss why data collection is essential, how we can use data to advance equity goals, and effective practices for both. Every Hour Counts will also preview their newly released Measurement Framework and accompanying Guidebook, resources to help communities set a shared vision and process for using data for improvement—with a focus on advancing equitable systems—at the youth, program, and system levels.
Jennifer McCombs from Learning Policy Institute and the RAND Corporation and Anamarie Whitaker with the University of Delaware, who led the design of the Every Hour Counts Measurement Framework and Guidebook, willshare useful tips on how intermediaries and out-of-school time networks can apply the measurement framework to their own continuous improvement processes. We will hear how one intermediary, Boston After School & Beyond, put the framework into practice. Femi Vance, of the American Institutes for Research, will share insights based on her observations of how organizations are staging their use of the Framework.
This webinar is presented in collaboration with the Afterschool Alliance, National AfterSchool Association, Forum for Youth Investment and National Summer Learning Association and is made possible with support from The Wallace Foundation.
