Earn MAAP Accreditation at Your Program

Do you work in a program that serves school-age youth? What systems are in place and what tools & resources do you use to ensure your youth are receiving quality programming, which more positively impacts their development, self-esteem, and school experience?

Accreditation is unique in that it guides programs through creating a new way of being. It utilizes a team-driven approach to program assessment, reflection on practices, goal setting, and committing to a mindset and culture of continuous improvement.

MAAP is a voluntary process providing a tangible and marketable endorsement (recognized by the state!) of quality in programs serving school-age youth. MnSACA's mission of promoting quality programs and supporting the leadership and development of professionals is embedded in the MAAP tool. Being a locally-run program, MnSACA is able to provide multiple opportunities for in-person support, training and guidance to sites going through the process, and ongoing after they earn their endorsement.

We look forward to working with your program on your continuous quality improvement journey!

Calling MAAP Coaches

Coaches play a crucial role in the accreditation process through observing program practices, providing feedback that guides programs toward improvement efforts, and supporting programs toward successful completion of their accreditation journey.

We are excited to offer a variety of professional development opportunities for those wishing to support programs going through MAAP accreditation, including our MAAP Coaching training on March 13.
