Our commitment to racial equity

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.

Essential youth program data and insights

Check out Elevate Washington

Elevate Washington is a source for comprehensive, statewide data about youth programs. The platform offers a critical vantage point from which to pinpoint gaps and connect the dots. It was created to support School’s Out Washington and its partners as we work to shape systems and create opportunities that make expanded learning opportunities available to all of Washington’s youth.

Elevate Washington is a community-driven data system powered by the information that youth program providers self-report. From youth and staff demographics to funding streams and program content—these data show us who’s being served and where gaps exist.
