This messaging toolkit is for organizations that use expanded learning to improve opportunities and outcomes for youth. It builds on a collaborative process conducted by partners with Every Hour Counts, a nonprofit which brings together intermediary leaders and funders in the after-school field to help communities build systems to deliver high-quality expanded learning opportunities for youth. It is available for organizations working in expanded learning, organizations that are building expanded-learning systems, and anyone else who wants to communicate clearly about this important work. The toolkit focuses on helping the field use clear, crisp, and consistent language. In addition to providing strategies and tips for communicating effectively, it provides language to explain the value of expanded learning, the work of intermediaries, and the role of expanded-learning systems in improving outcomes for youth.
