I see my program in the youth program directory, but the information is inaccurate or missing. How can I fix this?

If your program is already listed in the youth program directory, you will need to create an account with Elevate Washington and then claim your organization. Once you’ve been verified, you will be able to edit existing info and provide more detailed data. Here’s how to claim your organization.

Why is data sharing important?

Data allows us to shine a light on needs and gaps so that we can move quickly to address what is not working and channel resources accordingly. With good data we can have an impact on children and young people by:

  • Equipping providers with tools and insights to inform programming decisions and target services to where they’re needed most
  • Influencing policy and practice so that we can increase access to quality programs for young people—especially for low-income youth and youth of color
  • Capturing and maintaining youth and staff demographics data so that we have a lens on who’s being served and by whom

Should the same program at different sites be listed individually?

Yes, the same programs at different locations should have separate profiles. For example, if an organization hosts a Karate program at 5 different locations, each of those 5 sites  should have a unique program profile. In order to make this manageable for larger organizations, program profiles can be easily duplicated, edited and attached to different site profiles.
