Ready by 21 Webinar- Assessing and Improving Youth Program Quality- November 12, 3:00-4:00 pm

As the youth development and out-of-school time fields expand and mature, practitioners, policy makers and researchers are increasingly rallying around the importance of assessing and improving program quality. A range of tools is now available to support these efforts. Learn about what kinds of tools and resources are available and how they are being used to drive improvement efforts. Participants heard about the Youth Program Quality Assessment (Youth PQA) and how it creates understanding and accountability focused on the “point of service” — where youth and adults come together to co-produce developmental experiences. Participants also learned about how this tool is being used to improve quality across youth-serving systems in Austin, TX, and how it can be used in other communities.
