Sprockets 2016-17 Activator Improvement Cycle Info

Quality out-of-school time experiences play an important role in helping Saint Paul's youth recognize and achieve their greatest potential; that’s why we are committed to continuous program improvement through the Sprockets Activator Improvement Cycle. Participation in the cycle helps your organization improve the quality of your programs and the outcomes and experiences of your youth participants.

What’s the Activator commitment?

Attend Quality Kick Off on September 23rd
Baker Center, 209 W. Page St (registeration closed)

  • 9:00-12:00 Quality Kick Off - Required for at least one quality lead per organization.  Others encouraged to attend for great discussion topics, and networking.  We will also go through this year's Activator schedule, supports and requirements. If your quality lead is attending YPQA as a self assessment training, another staff may attend in his/her place.
  • 9:00-4:00 - YPQA as a Self Assessment training is a resource to organziations planning on participating in the Activator Cycle.  This is the one time a year that Sprockets provides this training to Activators and is a requirement for staff who have not yet been trained on YPQA but are planning on providing a self assessment.  A YPQA self assessment is required if you would like to also receive an External Assessment from Sprockets.
