Impact of National AfterSchool Association (NAA) Physical Activity Standards on Out-of-School Time Program Policies and Practice
Project Director: Georgia Hall, Ph.D.
Funder: Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (with RTi to USD/RWJF)
This commissioned analysis built upon earlier work conducted under ALR CA 70583 to Wellesley College. In that project, the Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College and RTi created a pilot survey to assess uptake of the NAA Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA) standards. Results indicated reasonable saturation into the out-of-school time program community after two years of dissemination efforts. About 60 percent of respondents were familiar with HEPA standards, and of those, about 72 percent reported using them for program planning.
