The Roads Taken Conference Report provides information and results from the virtual conference held in October and November 2016.

Representatives from ten long-standing youth programs, experts in out-of-school time (OST) youth programming, and researchers participated in the Roads Taken virtual conference in October and November 2016, funded by the National Science Foundation (DRL-1644479). Participants collaboratively developed a Program Profile template with dual purposes: a tool for practitioners and a tool for researchers. As the first phase the three-part plan, Program Profiles will eventually lead to a reinvigorated youth programming network of practitioners, a searchable database of program profiles, and research on long-term impact of youth programming.

The appendix includes the conference's summative evaluation report and the Program Profile Template.
