Throughout 2016, colleagues from across the youth development spectrum contributed expertise, time and energy to the YouthShift Action Teams and other activities. Their participation was invaluable as we all continue to support all young people in New Orleans. The final report – YouthShift 2016: Answering the Call for Connection — captures the highlights of the year’s work with a special focus on the recommendations from the Action Teams. The recommendations have informed the current and future work of many of our partners such as the YPQI initiative, the Data Center’s Youth Index, and the Children and Youth Planning Board. Action on the recommended youth development intermediary continues; fundraising is underway and the Foundation for Louisiana will act as the fiscal sponsor for the entity. Updates on the intermediary work will be shared with the YouthShift community as that work progresses.
Thanks again for the contributions of all the Action Team members!
