Earn MAAP Accreditation at Your Program

Do you work in a:

  • School-age (before-school, afterschool and/or summer) program? 
  • Early childhood program with a school-age classroom?
  • Community-based or faith-based program providing school-age care?

The state-approved Minnesota Afterschool Accreditation Program (MAAP) provides programs serving school-age youth with performance indicators to guide in program planning, implementation, and evaluation.

MAAP was developed by and is run by MnSACA, your trusted resource for quality and program improvement. Our mission of promoting quality programs and supporting the leadership and development of professionals is embedded in the MAAP tool.

More than 50 sites are already MAAP accredited and many more are in process.

Join the Upcoming Cohort

Our next MAAP cohort will begin in September 2018, so now is the perfect time to start planning! We are happy to talk with you and answer any questions. Check out the quick "Yes" or "No" survey below and let us know what you're thinking.

Learn More Before Enrolling

We invite you to four webinar-based trainings being held this spring on each of the MAAP Foundation Areas (Administration, Wellness, Activities, Relationships & Environment). Learn more about the Indicators you will be asked to implement, and leave with ideas for engaging with these best practices in your program. These trainings are a great way to prepare you and your staff for when you do decide to pursue accreditation. Learn more and register here.
