Savvy leaders know that changing the odds for youth requires changes in the ways they do business.
This is especially true as expectations rise for leaders to engage youth, families, and community leaders, develop evidence-based improvement strategies, and demonstrate equitable impacts.
The Forum helps leaders think differently about what it takes to manage and sustain change, connecting them with the specific ideas, services, and networks they need, whether they are in the process of planning and partnering for impact, improving and aligning policies, or strengthening practices and programs.
Improving & Aligning Policies
We help policymakers, advocates, and rising leaders increase their capacity by aligning with other advocates, departments, sectors, and levels of government to use data and evidence to support the whole child.
Planning & Partnering for Impact
We support boundary-spanning leaders charged with creating or implementing plans that require a focus on the bigger picture. We help leaders connect the dots across complex and sometimes competing goals, services, plans, and partners.
Strengthening Practices & Programs
We empower youth development, education, and human service system leaders to adopt, implement, and scale management and staff policies and practices that ensure young people have access to high quality, coordinated supports they need to succeed.
