VPOST, the Virginia Partnership for Out-of-School-Time, is a statewide public-private partnership dedicated to developing and expanding academic, social, emotional, and physical supports and services to school-age children and youth across the Commonwealth of Virginia during out-of-school time hours:
before-school, afterschool, vacation periods, and summer!
A future where all Virginia families have the out-of-school-time support they need to thrive.
To build a network of quality out-of-school-time programming for all Virginia children and youth.
OST Access Map
To better understand the landscape of OST in Virginia, VPOST has created the OST Access Map. This data story showcases data maps of program locations across the Commonwealth contrasted against data like school-age child population, poverty, working parents, legislative districts, and more.
VPOST has developed a guide that aims to simplify and provide complementing resources to the Standards for Virginia Child Day Programs. This guide gives an overview of enrolling and participating in the program. We have curated the information most applicable to school-aged, out-of-school time programs.
Power of Us Survey
Millions of professionals and volunteers work with young people every day in the many settings where youth play, learn, and grow outside of the school day. The American Institutes for Research (AIR) wants to know more about those who are still in the youth fields and those who left, so that they can explore, define, and elevate this collective workforce and their work with youth.
