What kind of data does Elevate Washington ask for?
Elevate Washington collects information about organizations, the site locations where programs are offered and details about each unique program. Below is an overview of the types of data we ask for.
- Organization details

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.
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 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 registered individually?
Yes, the same programs at different locations should be registered individually. For example, if an organization hosts a Karate program at five different locations, each of those five sites should register that one program. In order to make registration manageable for larger organizations, program data may be replicated and copied over to another site.
