LA’s BEST will expand utilization of the Connecting for Success curriculum to at least 75 of its after-school sites.  The program promotes social and emotional learning and will benefit up to 1,500 upper elementary school-age children over the next two years.  Initial results found that participants had better relationships with their peers and staff, improved leadership and decision making skills, and greater global awareness.  An internal assessment midstream will refine implementation and an external evaluation will fully assess the program’s effectiveness to inform replication by other after-school programs.
