The BOOST Network provides out-of-school time programs for youth in our communities
March 29, 2023
Out-of-school time (OST) programs provide safe, structured spaces with trusting adults for youth to learn, play, and connect with their peers while school is not in session. Evidence shows that OST programs reduce health disparities, improve personal and social skills, foster healthier lifestyles, support student academic achievement, and reduce incidents of delinquency and risky behaviors. The BOOST Network is a hub for out-of-school time (OST) providers that work together to identify, explore, and create opportunities that increase the quality and effectiveness of their programs for youth in west Texas, southern New Mexico, and Ciudad Juárez, Chih. Learn more about the BOOST Network and out-of-school programs in your community, visit www.theboostnetwork.org.
The BOOST Network is a partnership between the Paso del Norte Health Foundation and United Way of El Paso County.
