The Online Index to Quality Practices includes over 1000 specific quality practices identified from 66 nationally recognized (PEPNet Awarded) youth programs and organized by the PEPNet Quality Standards. The Index makes it possible for users to search for information by a specific PEPNet Quality Standard or indicator, practice (examples include follow-up, staff development, youth leadership and employer engagement), youth population served (including urban or rural), program funding stream, organization or any keyword the user chooses. The Index is linked to PEPNet Awardee Profiles, in-depth descriptions of the structure and practices of the 66 programs that received the PEPNet Award for quality practices between 1999 and 2003. These online profiles include contact information, a brief description of the program and its background, mission, funding sources and target population. Each profile also contains examples of the program's quality practices.
