The Out-of-School Time (OST) Project of the City of Philadelphia Department of Human Services funds afterschool and summer programs for youth in grades K-12. Administered by Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC), the OST Project serves 18,000 youth attending nearly 200 programs. This website is a resource for providers in our network, and for anyone interested in high-quality afterschool programming and OST best practices.
Where is the OST Project-Based Learning Blog? This website will continue to offer information about best practices in Out-of-School Time, including Project-Based Learning best practices.
Philadelphia OST providers should still access PCAPS for attendance, invoicing and other administrative functions.
