During COVID-19, OST operations will be moving online to offer virtual programming to Philadelphia students. We want to support our OST providers and families as much as possible — scroll down for resources we’ve compiled for online-program activities, professional development, and family supports. These will be updated frequently to reflect new opportunities.
Out-of-School Time (OST) programs help both youth and working parents succeed. Programs are available throughout the city with a variety of activities to choose from including math and reading support, STEM/STEAM, arts and crafts, sports, and more!
