New York City Afterschool Matters Research Practitioner Fellowship
Ongoing since 2014
Project Director: Ellen S. Gannett M. Ed.
Funder: Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation
This award provides funding for an Afterschool Matters Initiative Practitioner Fellowship group in New York City from fall 2014 to fall 2015. This group will expose 12-15 Fellows working with older youth to the world of inquiry research, and help them examine their own practices. Each Fellow will produce a paper or other product at the end of the process. The Fellows will be energized by their research and learning, becoming part of a strong network of professional out-of-school time workers in the New York Community.
