Society for Research on Adolescence Annual Meeting
Heather B. Weiss, Robert Granger, Chris Wimer, Reed Larson, Deborah Vandell, Jodie Roth
On March 24, 2006, Harvard Family Research Project organized the symposium Critical Issues in Adolescent Participation in Out-of-School Time Activities at the annual meeting of the Society for Research on Adolescence. This symposium featured findings from several studies funded by the William T. Grant Foundation on youth participation in out-of-school time activities, including contextual predictors, youth engagement, program quality, duration of participation, and youth outcomes. Heather Weiss chaired the session, Robert Granger served as discussant, and Chris Wimer, Reed Larson, Deborah Vandell, and Jodie Roth presented papers.

Chris Wimer of HFRP also presented a poster at the conference entitled Family Socioeconomic and Neighborhood Conditions as Predictors of Out-of-School Time Activity Participation. This study examined disadvantage at the family and neighborhood level and its association with participation in out-of-school time activities. Neighborhood socioeconomic characteristics (i.e., income, education, and employment) were found to mediate the association between family income, parent education, and ethnicity and children's participation in a variety of activities outside of school.
