OST Map

Out-of-school time (OST) programs in Pennsylvania serve K-12 and are available before- and afterschool, including weekends and summer. PSAYDN, with the generous support from foundations, EECapacity and Harrisburg University, has led the development of the state's only online, searchable database that identifies all OST (afterschool) programs in Pennsylvania. The map shown here is the culmination of this effort. Using existing state lists of licensed school-age childcare providers (OCDEL) and statewide surveys, a listing of nearly 5,000 OST programs are available to date. STEM-rich institutions are being identified and also added.
