In partnership with the The United Way of Greater Richmond and Petersburg, the Mary and Frances Youth Center manages the implementation of the Youth Program Quality Intervention (YPQI) quality improvement process for out-of-school-time service providers across the region.
MFYC's involvement in the process supports the center becoming a local and regional youth training resource for youth program quality and youth development professionals.
Utilizing the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality system, the process empowers education and human service leaders to adapt, implement and scale best-in-class, research validated quality improvement systems to advance child and youth development.
The organizations below reflect the diversity of our region and the relevancy of YPQI.
