The Out 2 Learn Network understands the importance of having access to strong after-school and out-of-school programs. Studies show when youth participate in higher quality programs they tend to: Increase school day attendance Increase after-school attendance Increase positive behavior Increase engagement in instruction and skill-building activities Decrease grade retention Decrease disciplinary referrals
We provide an assessment tool and training to prepare staff for the following: conducting a self-assessment, reporting site findings, and interpreting site data to create meaningful change at their site. We couple this with a series of Youth Work Methods workshops based on your program findings and best youth program practices to assist quality improvement. All of this is provided by the Out 2 Learn network free of charge. Your dedication to quality improvement and participation is all we ask in return. To be eligible to join our Quality Improvement Process, you must have at least one program offering for youth between Pre-K - 12th grade on a consistent basis between August - May.
