WHY COLLECTIVE FOR YOUTH? No matter what door a child walks into for an out-of-school time (OST) program, it should be a high quality experience. Collective for Youth’s mission is to lead and support a network of high quality out-of-school programs that inspire and engage youth, stimulating academic and personal growth. It is our vision that all youth have expanded learning opportunities that ignite the imagination, grow the mind, and provide the foundation for success in school and life. Collective for Youth provides support to 25 school based OST sites serving over 3,500 youth. These hands on experiences are opening doors for children every day.
Collective for Youth strives to bring high quality professional development opportunities to our members. Please take advantage of any of these trainings, workshops and conferences to strengthen staff skills and develop leadership within your organization. As a part of our effort to strengthen and further our efforts in providing high quality out of school time activities, Collective for Youth endorses and partners with conferences throughout the country. We have a wide array of partners in the community! Contact us if you would like to learn more about how to become a part of Collective for Youth and the work we do.
