Algorhythm builds online assessment and evaluation tools for nonprofits and those that support them — including the Youth Development Impact Learning System, an assessment, planning and evaluation tool for those that run, fund and support youth development programs.


The YDiLS is currently used by over 260 programs across 20 states… which means our system is constantly learning with and from hundreds of dedicated youth workers supporting over 10,000 youth across the country. We're incredibly excited to partner with the SuperStar Foundation to launch three new SuperStar Awards that will celebrate exceptional youth practitioners from organizations in our network, who are effectively using data to improve their programs and work with youth.


Nominees will be identified through an internal application process, which will be reviewed by a panel of youth development experts. Three youth workers will ultimately be recognized with the following awards:

  • 1st place: $2,500

  • 2nd place: $1,500

  • 3rd place: $1,000

The 1st place winner will also be considered for this calendar year’s Superstar Foundation $5,000 Veronica Award!


AWARD ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: Only staff employed by current users of Algorhythm’s Youth Development Impact Learning System (YDiLS) are eligible for this Superstar Award.

About the Superstar Foundation

The Superstar Foundation was founded in 2007 with a two-fold mission:

  • To identify and reward individuals who use data to improve outcomes for underserved individuals, families and communities.
  • To promote and advance transformative relationships as the driving force to outcome achievement in the social services sector;

As health, education and social services continue to progress towards better measurement of outcomes, the Superstar Foundation believes that transformative relationships and a commitment to data-based decision making at the level of engagement is the key to all long-term, sustainable improvement in the lives of those we serve.
