Success For Each Child & Eliminate the Opportunity Gap by Leading with Racial Equity

Program Quality

The 21st CCLC participates in the David P. Weikart Center’s Youth Program Quality Initiative to support program quality and improvement. Typically, this process includes internal and external assessments, which Site Coordinators and staff use to inform program quality improvement goals. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, school closures, and the shift to virtual programming, formal assessments were not required in 2020-21. (Additional data available)
