One of the objectives of the Learning in Afterschool project is to raise awareness of the importance of afterschool to young people's learning - awareness of the general public, of decision makers, and of program leaders who are charged with designing afterschool experiences.
The California Afterschool Alliance has created a valuable factsheet entitled "California's Afterschool Programs Increase Learning," which can be downloaded by clicking here. This factsheet cites the Learning in Afterschool website as a resource for those who wish to promote learning as a key asset in afterschool. It is one of a suite of messaging materials that are available by going to http://www.ca3advocacy.org/ and clicking on "factsheets."
