Apply Now to Join the King County Youth Program Quality Initiative (YPQI)!

by School's Out Washington | | Posted under School's Out News

School’s Out Washington and the Raikes Foundation are excited to invite new programs to join the Youth Program Quality Initiative (YPQI) in King County!

The YPQI supports Expanded Learning Opportunity programs serving youth ages 5-21. The Initiative engages organizations in a focused professional development process that reflects best practices in the youth development field. The YPQI was developed based off the work and approach of the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality.

The Initiative is a 12-month process for organizations that have never participated in the YPQI before. Grants of $3,000 will be awarded by School’s Out Washington to selected organizations for participation in the YPQI process, and the costs for all services below will be covered by School’s Out Washington.

The process includes: participation in a peer learning community, completion of a program quality assessment using both a self-assessment and external assessors, staff training in youth development best practices from the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality, and onsite coaching and technical assistance (based on individual site priorities) provided by SOWA.

The deadline for receiving proposals is 5:00pm on Nov 9th, 2016. Please review the dates in the RFP to ensure that you are able to meet the participation requirements. For more information, please contact James Lovell at jlovell@schoolsoutwashington.org.
