Our commitment to racial equity

School’s Out Washington is committed to dismantling the racist systems that block young people from experiencing high-quality expanded learning. We recognize the continued violence and oppression impacting brown and Black people in our communities and throughout our country. And, we acknowledge that these injustices threaten the empowerment and well being of the young people we are so deeply invested in. School’s Out Washington is working to become an antiracist organization.

We support the people and organizations who empower youth through expanded learning.

School’s Out Washington is working to ensure equitable access to high-quality, expanded learning programs in all Washington communities—especially for low-income youth and youth of color. Through advocacy, professional learning, and grants we have established a foundation of support and expertise that enables and enriches the critical work of youth-serving organizations.

Check out Elevate Washington

Elevate Washington is a member-based youth program data system and public directory. It includes nonprofits, businesses, and agencies that offer afterschool enrichment, childcare, youth services, and a range of other opportunities and support for children and young people (ages 5 to 24).

SOWA created the Elevate Washington so that we have the tools and information needed to see where youth programs are operating in our state and better understand who’s being served. With this critical data, we’re able to advocate for resources and also provide families with an easy way to find programs in their area.
