Out of School Time Program Works With FAST®

Families with children participating in Out of School Time (OST) are able to attend FAST one afternoon a week. In fact, both the FAST and OST programs gain when families attend. Why? Parents and teachers often see positive changes in children and an increase in children’s self-esteem, especially when families attend several FAST sessions. These benefits are expected to be observed in the Out of School Time program, as well.

See more Information on the FAST Program.
