YPQI is the only regional quality improvement process being implemented throughout the Richmond community. Becoming part of the next cohort gives an organization access to the entire process while also connecting staff with the broader youth development professional learning community. Participants receive data on their program, as well as regional and national comparative data, and more than 15 trainings.
For professionals who have spent their careers committed to serving youth during out-of-school time, the YPQI program is a good fit to provide expertise and service as an external assessor or quality coach for the region. YPQI administrators recruit experts and leaders in the field to join our team for annual participation.
Richmond YPQI is looking to partner with VCU faculty in the following capacities:
YPQI is implemented in 29 other region-wide networks across the country and more than seven state-wide networks. Research and publications could spark national interest.
Richmond YPQI offers access to youth development organizations throughout the region. For students looking to work with youth in any capacity, volunteering with Richmond YPQI can provide valuable experience and exposure to this growing field.
To become involved in any capacity, contact Shekinah Mitchell at email@example.com for more information.
