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!

Our Vision

A future where all Virginia families have the out-of-school-time support they need to thrive.

Our Mission

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.

Additional Funds Available

The VDOE has announced the availability of 21st CCLC grant funds to be awarded to community-based organizations partnering with school divisions. This grant is awarded to eligible nonprofit agencies, faith-based organizations, and institutions of higher education.

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.
