Messages Made Simple: Communications Toolkit for Expanded Learning

5 May 2016, Every Hour Counts
This messaging toolkit is for organizations that use expanded
learning to improve opportunities and outcomes for youth. It builds on
a collaborative process conducted by Every Hour Counts partners and is
available to organizations working in expanded learning, organizations that
are building expanded-learning systems, and anyone else who wants to
communicate clearly about this important work. The toolkit focuses on helping the field use clear, crisp, consistent language.

In addition to providing strategies and tips for communicating effectively,
it provides language to explain the value of expanded learning, the work
of intermediaries, and the role of expanded-learning systems in improving
outcomes for youth.
