The team is required to meet once a quarter, dates & times to be agreed upon. If you wish to participate on the QIT team please email zollie.ford@us.af.mil at your earliest convenience.

Child & Youth Development Program Standards
COA's Standards for Child & Youth Development (CYD) Programs are applicable for Early Childhood Education (ECE), After School (ASP), and Youth Development (YD) programs. These standards reflect COA's philosophy that COA Accreditation is not an end but a means to an end. The real endpoint is a program's enhanced growth and stability, an unwavering commitment to the health, safety, and rights of children and youth, and measurable and observable results.

Who They Are
The Council on Accreditation (COA) is an international, independent, nonprofit, human service accrediting organization. Founded in 1977 by the Child Welfare League of America and Family Service America (now the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities), our mission is to partner with human service organizations worldwide to improve service delivery outcomes by developing, applying, and promoting accreditation standards.

What is Accreditation?
The formal evaluation of an organization or program against best practice standards. It is both a status and a process:

As a Status
It signifies that an organization or program meets standards of quality set forth by the accrediting body.

As a Process
It involves an in-depth self-review of an organization or program against currently accepted best practice standards, an onsite visit by an evaluation team comprised of experts, and a subsequent review and decision by the accrediting body.

What is a Standard?
A statement that articulates a level of quality developed by subject matter experts that will be implemented and maintained by an organization or program pursuing accreditation and an accredited organization or program.

Value of COA Accreditation
Accreditation signifies that an organization or program is effectively managing its resources and providing the best possible services to all of its stakeholders.
