How does School’s Out Washington decide which programs to list in the directory?

Some programs are added by School’s Out Washington staff and reflect information that is publicly available on an organization’s website. Most programs, however, are listed by the organization that operates the program. School’s Out Washington reviews but does not formally vet these programs.

Programs must meet the minimum criteria of offering expanded learning or supportive services for youth in Washington who are between the ages of 5 and 24. Program providers include nonprofits, businesses, and agencies that provide afterschool enrichment, childcare, youth services, and a range of other opportunities. 

The presence of a program in the youth program directory does not imply an endorsement by School’s Out Washington nor does it imply the suitability, availability, quality, or capacity of the listed program. Families and advocates are encouraged to investigate and then decide for themselves whether a particular organization, site, or program fits their circumstances and needs.
