3:30 Learn about MOST from Nathan Beck
16,000 Madison kids and their parents rely on Out-of-School Time (OST) organizations in Madison, and when kids have consistent access to quality OST opportunities they, and our community, reap the benefits. There is a lot to celebrate about the OST field in Madison, but MOST has a bolder vision: That every young person deserves these outcomes and every young person deserves access to high quality Out-of-School Time programs.
In this talk, MOST will share the state of the Out-of-School Time field in Madison. We’ll answer questions like: who has access to OST opportunities and who doesn’t, what are the main barriers for families, students, and organizations to serving more youth, what are the differences between young people who have regular access to OST and those who don’t, what does the workforce of these organizations look like and what are their challenges, who pays for OST programs in Madison, and what do we still not know.
