The Louisiana Afterschool Program Quality Institute (LAPQI) was established to help programs build and advance afterschool program quality. The LAPQI is committed to equipping programs with best practices, research, and resources and offering afterschool professionals with opportunities to further their program quality commitment.


The LAPQI recognizes:

  • The need for foundational understanding among OST programs with regards to continuous quality improvement.

  • The need to deepen the skills and knowledge of OST professionals to ensure high-quality program implementation and outcomes.
