Achieve-Connect-Thrive (ACT) Skills Framework
The Achieve, Connect, Thrive (ACT) Skills Framework displays the skills that evidence suggests students need in order to succeed in school, college, and careers. The skills are the focus of leading afterschool and summer learing programs. Boston After School & Beyond is organizing several projects to demonstrate ACT in action.
Commissioned by the Mayor, the Boston Public Schools, Boston After School & Beyond, and the United Way, with the support of The Wallace Foundation, the framework provides a common vocabulary to bridge education and youth development, as well as school, afterschool and summer learning. Increasingly, framework acts as a guide to help youth programs articulate outcomes and how they are measured.
