The Beyond the Bell® Toolkit is designed to help afterschool and expanded learning program directors, site coordinators, and other staff members create and sustain high-quality, effective afterschool and expanded learning programs. AIR takes the guesswork out of designing, implementing, and evaluating your program and helps you stay current with the research on what works in afterschool and expanded learning.
The Toolkit – now available in hardcopy or online and interactive! – is practical and easy-to-use, and contains great information for program leaders who want to start or improve an afterschool and expanded leaning program. It is designed to be a resource for program leaders from both community-based and school-based programs. The Toolkit features practical tips and reminders and Voices from the Field – true stories that describe what real programs are doing. Beyond the Bell – Live! features an interactive quiz to help guide readers to the most relevant content for their unique program.
The Toolkit is divided into six stand-alone sections and contains 96 ready-to-use tools to support your efforts in program management, design, partnerships, delivery, evaluation, and continuous program improvement.
