Launch of the Summer Insight Center

Over the past six years of implementing the Boston Summer Learning Community, Boston After School & Beyond, in partnership with the Boston Public Schools, has gathered a wealth of information about planning and delivering high-quality summer programs. The Summer Insight Center is the mechanism by which we hope to share and disseminate these lessons broadly to the out-of-school time field.


The goal of this initiative is to help program leaders, funders, and city officials – both locally and nationally – learn from and adopt best practices in their own summer learning work. We’ve done the heavy-lifting and reached out to our partners near and far to locate and organize the most-useful resources available in summer learning.

Click around to explore the Best Practices – or read some Case Studies from fellow programs that have scored highly in certain program quality domains. Check back often because more content will be posted frequently throughout the site.
