Youth Program Quality Assessment (YPQA)

History
This tool and related work, developed by the High/Scope Educational Research Foundation and supported by the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality, offers programs the ability to conduct self-assessments. It also offers external assessment and creation of a plan for improvement, effectively coaching their staff to improve areas they identify as issue areas.
Impact
Our Team’s Youth PQA work and services include training in the assessment tool, reliable external assessment for an organization or program offering, and follow-up trainings using the ten Youth Work Methods workshops and other customized workshops addressing your specific needs. We will work with you to determine the fit of this particular tool and whether internal or external assessment is the better fit for you.

CYC works with various funders and entities within Iowa to raise the quality of youth programs. Our team of assessors help organizations improve practices through the use of the Youth Program Quality Improvement process to impact youth developmental outcomes.
