At the Center for Afterschool and Expanded Learning, we believe it takes practice to know practice—and especially to teach it. Staff at the Center know practice from years of experience in afterschool, school teaching, administration, parks and recreation, museum education, and more. And we keep learning, by operating pre-K through high school afterschool programs at selected sites in Philadelphia, PA.
Through these programs, we test approaches, content and staff development in the real world of tight budgets, tight timelines and high expectations. The experiences deeply inform our publications, trainings and technical assistance across the country.
