Taking a Big Picture Approach to Youth Outcomes
If our end game is improved youth outcomes, what is it going to take to get there? We are learning that it is not sufficient to work hard only within our own organizations, we must collectively attend to the partnerships, data, evidence and resources needed to affect population level change.
Empowering Youth: A Growth Mindset Approach
We all want the same thing for our children – success. Whether it’s measured through high school graduation, career readiness or substance abuse education, success requires a belief that all children can learn. Empower yourself and others to act on this belief in meaningful ways starting tomorrow.
