supporting quality youth work in Detroit
The Youth Development Resource Center in Detroit is an out-of-school time capacity builder that advocates for high-quality after school and summer learning opportunities for Detroit’s youth. We offer capacity-building and training opportunities focused on increasing the quality of youth development programs.
Our work is guided by a set of Standards for Quality Youth Development Programs that were created in 2014 through a community process. The standards are based on best practice research, as well as the voices of youth and program providers. We have also released a set of Summer Learning Quality Standards, developed through a partnership with the United Way for Southeastern Michigan's Summer Spark campaign. These tools are available to you in our online toolkit.
Sign-up for our monthly newsletter and we will keep you updated with relevant workshops, networking opportunities, resources and funding opportunities for afterschool and summer learning programs throughout the year.
