kristin shipletCongratulations to Kristin Shiplet, School’s Out Washington’s newest Coach & Trainer and the 500th person to be trained in the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality’s Methods workshops.  Kristin coaches Pierce County programs going through the Youth Program Quality Initiative. She has spent the past six years of her career in the Tacoma area creating and implementing impactful youth programming.

Kristin is dedicated to creating equal opportunities for all youth to receive high-quality afterschool programming and believes the Youth Program Quality Initiative directly impacts youth serving organizations to enhance their programming. As a reliable external assessor, Kristin has had experience observing high quality programming throughout Pierce and Kitsap counties. Additionally, Kristin works at the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound where she oversees program implementation among 15 different Club locations.  Kristin explains in her own words why quality matters to her and in supporting the field:

“As a youth-serving professional in Pierce and Kitsap counties, I am passionate about creating opportunities for all youth to engage with programs that allow them to grow as leaders, become caring and responsible citizens, and the chance to succeed academically. As a YPQ trainer, I enjoy sharing this passion with other youth program staff by working together to enhance the already-existing opportunities for youth by applying the principals of the YPQ process.”
