Improving Systems and Settings: Quality Improvement in Asheville Webinar, December 13, 2011, 3 PM ET

Healthy behavior, staying in school, problem-solving skills - these are among the outcomes we all want to see in our young people. It is always encouraging to be able to point to a new mentoring initiative, a great afterschool program or a really innovative school, but to achieve community- and state-wide impact, you need to do something bigger. You need to make high-quality interactions between young people and adults routine. Approaching quality improvement from a community-wide perspective helps to ensure that the good work done in one corner of a community - such as a school, afterschool program or gymnasium - is complemented by work done elsewhere in the community. On Dec. 13, 2011, Joe Bertoletti and Amanda Sutter of the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality and Gina Gallo from the United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County shared their work to assess the quality, reach and coordination of services in Asheville, North Carolina.
