The Youth Development work group consists of leaders from regional public and non-profit programs who are focused on supporting youth to remain engaged in school and be successful learners. The group focuses on opportunities to work collaboratively to fill gaps in services. Past activities have included coordinating two separate convocations in which school administrators and teachers were given an opportunity to learn about and link with social service programs. The convocations were designed in a “trade show” format with school administrators given the ability to “shop” for the services needed to improve outcomes for students at their schools.
The Youth Development work group meets the second Wednesday of every month from 3 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Contact Dawn Elsbree at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the email list for meeting notifications and locations.
