Description or Abstract: 

This paper describes initial findings from the Mapping Out-of-School Time Science (MOST-Science) study. The study examines the characteristics of out-of-school time programs and their home organizations, including aspects of program design, structure, funding, staffing, and youth audience. We then discuss how organization types differ in these program aspects and draw out implications for practice.
