* A Note About the Quantum Opportunities Program
Within the PASHA collection, the Quantum Opportunities Program (QOP) is unique in two respects. First, while other programs in the PASHA collection may last for a few sessions, a few weeks, or even a few months, QOP is designed to last for four years --from the beginning of a participant's freshman year of high school through graduation.
Second, while other programs in the PASHA collection come with standardized curricular materials, QOP is best implemented when the content is completely customized to the community's specific needs and available resources. For example, in the original implementation of QOP, Program Coordinators offered classes in remedial math to program participants; your program may opt to focus on other substantive areas. Therefore, this program box does not include all the materials needed to replicate the program. Rather, it includes the program's framework, strategies and guidelines for implementing that framework along with tools for evaluation.
