Welcome!

Welcome to the Youth Community Data Center (YCDC)! This site serves organizations in the Greater Grand Rapids area that are a member of the Expanded Learning Opportunities Network (ELO), as well as parents, youth, and any other interested community members.

ELO is a coalition of community stakeholders consisting of over 60 organizations serving over 21,000 children at 180 sites who are working to ensure every child in the Grand Rapids community has access to quality afterschool programs that are well-coordinated and make efficient use of dollars. ELO is recognized as a Model Collaborative by the Michigan After School Partnership (MASP) for driving system-wide change for afterschool programs, developing standards of quality for afterschool programs, and building partnerships to enhance and sustain quality programming for children and youth.
