Youth Program Quality Assessment

Project RISE uses the Youth Program Quality Assessment (YPQA) to help Youth Enrichment (YEN) providers deliver high quality programming. The YPQA was specifically designed to measure interactions, activities, and opportunities for youth development in enrichment programs. Download a copy of the YPQA by visiting The David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program website.
