BLOCS (Building Louisville’s Out-of-School Time Coordinated System) is a community partnership — founded by Metro United Way, Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS), and Louisville Metro Government — that connects youth to programs, connects programs to one another, identifies gaps in service, works to build system-wide quality through community trainings, provides professional opportunities for youth workers, and measures the program quality.

2019 Data Report

This 2019 BLOCS Data Report takes a deep dive into data collected from participating BLOCStar sites for the four-year period 2014 to 2018.


BLOCS originated in response to recommendations from the 2008 “Graduate! Greater Louisville High School Graduation Summit.” The summit ultimately led to the publication of the 2010 YouthPrint Report that presented strategies and recommendations to build a system, guided by a long-term planning process, that would fulfill a vision for bettering Louisville-area youth. The founding organizations are Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville Metro Government, and Metro United Way. The Alliance for Youth joined the partnership not long afterward. This partnership was formalized in 2012.

In addition to our founding partners, BLOCS also has national partners who help provide additional information, resources and support in furthering our vision to improve opportunities for our youth.
