School's Out Washington is an intermediary organization dedicated to building community systems to support quality afterschool and youth development (AYD) programs for Washington's 5-18 year olds through training, advocacy and leadership. Through a range of training and professional development services, we promote quality standards and offer opportunities for AYD program providers to develop skills, receive support and network with peers. We disseminate research on the benefits of programs and mobilize children's advocates to take action on issues impacting the AYD field. Our grant programs support quality programs in a variety of ways. We also facilitate communication among AYD professionals, schools, law enforcement officials, policymakers, civic leaders, foundations and other partners to establish accountability and a system of support for Washington's young people.
