Vermont guidelines for afterschool, summer, and youth development programs


The Vermont Guidelines for Afterschool, Summer, and Youth Programs (hereafter referred to as the “Guidelines”) have been created to support Vermont programs in achieving positive youth outcomes by providing staff with Guidelines for what quality looks like in a program setting. The Guidelines are intended to be a clear and concise set of benchmarks that any program serving young people in the State of Vermont can strive to meet. The Guidelines address core components that, when combined, create a high-quality program. They are also designed to act as a means against which programs can measure themselves and work toward continuous progress and improvement, and are meant to complement and support existing program requirements from partner agencies. Vermont has prioritized the inclusion of guidelines on cultural competency and adult responsiveness and the overarching importance of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. These elements should be present in all aspects of the program’s work with children, youth, and families. (author abstract)
