Expanding the Vision - A Shared Youth Vision Mentoring Process

Posted by - On February 05, 2008 (EST)

The Shared Youth Vision - crafted in 2003 following a White House Task Force report on Disadvantaged Youth identified the need for federal agencies to serve as a catalyst to strengthen coordination, communication and collaboration among youth serving agencies to support the neediest youth and their transition to successful adult roles and responsibilities. In response to the report and to the need, 16 states competed to become pilot states whose efforts looked to combine strong statewide collaboration and commitment with sound local implementation strategies to serve these youth. This "mentoring" Webinar will be the first opportunity for pilot states and "mentee" states to clarify how this process will work, define expectations of time, commitment, and outcomes for both mentor and mentee states, and the development of a process to begin working together. Pilot states will share lessons learned and effective tools or techniques that they have employed over the last two years.

Presentation topics will include:

  • Expectations & timeframes for the work ahead
  • Developing your state team – lessons learned
  • Using local implementation strategies to support systemic change
  • Getting support/buy in from State leadership
  • Challenges/barriers that will emerge
  • Strategies employed to manage challenges/barriers
  • Next steps in the mentoring process
