Identifying and Addressing Barriers to Program Implementation

This tool helps communities identify, align, and integrate resources so they can strengthen systems and partnerships to design high-impact programming for opportunity youth. It is designed to lead communities through a series of questions that should allow them to better determine when an innovative solution is needed to implement strategies that serve their goals. It is likely that the tool will not be completed in one session and communities may need to bring in additional support or partners to work through some steps. This guide was created by the Forum for Youth Investment and Jobs for the Future.
