Beyond School Services

Asia Society provides technical assistance to afterschool programs, networks, and intermediaries to build public awareness, enhance program quality, and advance supportive policies nationwide. This assistance includes:

Professional Development: Sessions to increase staff’s knowledge about global competence and instructional strategies for developing globally competent youth

Program Assessment: Analysis of program activities or administration to identify quality practices and improve conditions for global learning

Program Development: Creation of tools or strategies to increase the scope or quality of global learning opportunities and improve youth outcomes

Capacity Building: Strategy development and advisement sessions to increase the effectiveness of globally-focused practices, services, and systems

We also work with schools across the country to recognize learning that takes place in out-of-school time through our performance-based assessment system, the Graduation Performance System. This work helps to meet the increasing demand from policymakers, parents, and students to maximize the entire learning day and year to provide critical 21st century skills.
