The Georgia Afterschool & Youth Development (ASYD) Quality Standards

Georgia’s afterschool and youth development programs provide thousands of youth – from kindergarten through high school – with safe and enriching environments in their time outside of the home and school. High quality afterschool and youth development programs can make important contributions to young people’s development and well-being. To ensure that Georgia’s young people are equipped to thrive and succeed in their lives, our afterschool and youth development programs must provide environments and experiences that benefit youth socially, emotionally, and academically.

The Georgia Division of Family and Children Services Prevention and Community Support Section partners with the Georgia Department of Education, the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services Wellbeing Section, and the Georgia Department of Public Health to collaborate in developing the Georgia Afterschool and Youth Development (ASYD) Quality Standards and Conference.
