"I found the documentation provided by SEDL to be be informative, concise, clear, and most importantly - rooted in best practices that have been evaluated in real world conditions."
"I would recommend it to others in the profession because the statistical data is important in finding positive ways to enhance and improve our afterschool programs."
"I would recommend it because it helps to serve as a guide to getting started. Some of the material may not be applicable to everyone, but you can use and modify according to your own needs and that is great. I really am thankful for it. This actually takes the guesswork out of it, and as the director I can move on to other areas of the program that are not so developed."
"I recommend the document because it is a valuable tool to learn afterschool program."
