Promising Practices in Afterschool System (PPAS)

The Promising Practices in Afterschool System (PPAS) is an effort to find and share things that are working in after-school programs. The PPAS Web site is for after-school program directors who want to improve the quality of their programs. Others will find it useful, too—program staff, volunteers, parents, community members, policymakers, funders, researchers, and anyone else who cares about children and youth.

On the PPAS Web site you will find information you can use in your own program. You can see promising practices from programs around the country, talk with other after-school staff, search for funding, look for new curricula, and share ideas.

NIFA partners with Promising Practices in After-School to conduct training, provide reviewers for proposals, design the framework and criteria for selection of practices, and advance the field of after-school programs. Collaborative efforts connect the expertise of the Land-Grant University System to the Promising Practices effort and provide opportunities for CES staff and programs to become part of the national peer-reviewed collection.
