VPOST is excited to announce our second cohort of STEM Youth Ambassadors! 20 Virginia youth ages 13-18 are eager to represent teens across the Commonwealth who love participating in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities during afterschool.

VPOST works alongside program providers, partners, and advocates to create a comprehensive network of out-of-school time stakeholders in Virginia. We encourage you to review our 2022 Annual Report and explore the ways we have been expanding access to high-quality out-of-school time programs in Virginia over the last year.

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.
