The Program Quality Standards are a tool to help Programs develop and grow. They allow
Programs to identify what to focus on or change to keep moving forward. As a movement, we
recognize the need to be clear about what is important. These standards are intended to spark honest
conversations about what can be improved in your Program.
This is the second version of the standards. It was published in January 2017. These standards are aligned
with Global Strategic Plan initiatives. For each
strategy in the global plan, there is one page of
standards. The number of standards has
been reduced by approximately 40% compared with the original version.
The document below gives background on the standards and includes a complete listing of all standards.
