Mission, Vision, Values

The Out 2 Learn Network seeks to give young people access to safe, engaging, inspiring programs that stimulate them mentally and emotionally.

The Mission

The Out 2 Learn Network will expand access to quality afterschool and out-of-school time programs in the greater Houston area.

Our Vision: All of Houston’s children will succeed.

Studies show that kids who participate in safe, healthy out-of-school programs that foster a strong learning environment grow and mature in many ways. Their attendance in school improves. Their engagement in school gets stronger, and they are more likely to take ownership of their education, which is vital to their personal success. This can and should — and will — occur in the greater Houston area.

Out 2 Learn values Access, Connection, and Quality.


Out 2 Learn is an online hub providing access to programs that serve the academic, social, emotional, physical, and mental needs of students and families from all communities in the greater Houston area.


Out 2 Learn makes available a searchable database of quality programs for students and families to navigate.


The Out 2 Learn Network is committed to helping organizations deliver high-quality programming. The Network follows a nationally recognized Youth Program Quality Intervention and continuous improvement process in order to assess and improve quality in programs serving our communities.
