This bibliography contains citations for all the out-of-school time (OST) program evaluations and research studies that Harvard Family Research Project is currently tracking. Some of these evaluations and research studies we have profiled and added to our Out-of-School Time Program Research and Evaluation Database. For those in this bibliography that we have not profiled yet, we do not have detailed information on the evaluations and studies, but we do provide basic program or research study information as well as links to relevant evaluation and research reports.
The last update to the bibliography was in January 2012.

A 2015 meta-analysis of studies examining the influence of out-of-school-time programs on improving outcomes for low-income and minority at-risk youth reveals that focused-programs (reading-focused or math-focused) are more effective than general-academic programs at improving academic outcomes for these at-risk youth.
