WCK was founded in 2009. Our vision is to have a world where all children are given the opportunity to reach their full potential. Washington County is the second most populated Oregon county with over 137,549 children ages 0-17. WCK fills an important need in the county as the only county-wide coordinator serving afterschool and summer OST programs and is also a liaison to the county’s early learning hub. WCK facilitates networking, educational opportunities, the sharing of best practices, and fostering collaboration among providers. It is also an advocate for sustainable funding to provide access to OST (early learning, after school, and summer) programs for county kids.
When it comes to academic performance, emotional development, and preparation for employment, County kids are missing out. Let’s strengthen our community by giving children access to the kind of programs they need to succeed.
