Campaign for Quality Videos

The California Afterschool Network is proud to announce a series of videos that highlight each of the 11 sections of the Quality Self-Assessment Tool (QSA Tool) and the 5 sections of the High School Quality Self-Assessment Rubric. Each of the 3-5 minute videos is designed to start meaningful conversations with your after school program’s stakeholders on program quality and to start a plan for continuous improvement.

Ideas on how to use the Campaign for Quality Videos to start meaningful conversations around program quality:

  • Play one of the videos at each of your site's meetings
  • Show the videos to your school Principal or to teachers at school staff meetings
  • Start your staff professional development trainings with a video as an icebreaker
  • Have classroom check-in meetings with your students by using the videos to get your students' feedback on your program.
