The Idaho Out-of-School Network’s (ION) mission is to ensure Idaho’s youth have access to high quality out-of-school (OST) programs.
The research on OST programs reveals that youth consistently enrolled in quality programs perform better academically, have better school attendance, adapt better socially, are more likely to graduate from high school and go-on to higher learning. Research also reveals that they are less likely to engage in unhealthy behaviors that may lead to crime, substance abuse or teen parenthood. New studies are showing too that OST programs are helping close the achievement gap of students across income levels. ION is the only program of its kind in Idaho, though all 50 states have launched similar programs.
ION does not directly offer out-of-school programs; the focus is to advocate and promote the benefits of out-of-school programming, help connect families and youth to a program and support providers with resources and training to enrich and expand their programming and services.
Connecting people to independence.
Empowering people with disabilities to achieve their desired level of independence.
LINC is a catalyst for independent living – the power to choose and the power to change.
We believe that every individual regardless of the nature or degree of their abilities, race, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, etc. should direct his or her own life and we’re here to help put that independence within reach. We offer tools, advocacy and support so people can live the life of their own design, whatever that design may be. Our approach is built on trust, truth, transparency, and an unwavering belief that independent living and personal choice are civil rights worth fighting for.People with disabilities have a voice and should have equal access to things like housing, work incentives and benefits, health care, transportation, and recreation. We want to offer as much assistance as we can so you can focus on living independently.
