JOIN THE ELEVATE WASHINGTON COMMUNITY
Knowledge to drive change
Elevate Washington is a community resource that captures and maintains critical data on Washington’s youth-serving programs.
From site details and youth demographics to continuous quality improvement data—our insights and analyses are designed to inform programming, funding, systems-level strategy, advocacy and more.
Elevate Washington was created to support School’s Out Washington and its partners as they strive to shape systems and create opportunities that make expanded learning opportunities available to all of Washington’s youth—especially those furthest away from educational justices.
For three decades, School’s Out Washington has been working towards a Washington where all young people have opportunities to thrive and reach their full potential, regardless of race or income. We support youth-serving professionals and programs, helping them provide high-quality services that give youth opportunities they deserve to succeed.
