White House Opportunity: Help Shape Performance Partnership Pilots on Disconnected Youth Webinar Recording

Some 800 leaders from around the country joined a Forum webinar on June 27 to find out.  Kathy Stack of the White House Office of Management and Budget shared information about Performance Partnership Pilots for Disconnected Youth – a provision in President Obama’s 2013 budget proposal to allow selected states and communities to use money from different federal funding streams to pilot innovative approaches. The purpose: Work across department lines to improve outcomes for disconnected youth. Much of the webinar was dedicated to Q and A, with questions coming in via Twitter and a live chat. 
 

Panelists: Thaddeus Ferber, Vice President for Policy, Forum for Youth Investment Elizabeth Gaines, Policy Director, Forum for Youth Investment Kathy Stack, White House Office of Management and Budget

Reconnections is SparkAction's original series of blogs on recovering disconnected youth. Featuring both experts in the field and opportunity youth as guest bloggers, the series explores the causes of youth disconnection, as well as the policies and solutions for reconnecting young people who are out of school and unemployed, often slipping through the cracks of the system and pathways to success.
