Description:

Vulnerable youth populations, such as youth transitioning out of the child welfare system and youth who have become disconnected from school and work, can find it challenging to navigate the systems that can connect (or reconnect) them to postsecondary education, training, or a rewarding career. These youth can struggle to reach the educational and employment milestones that set them on a path to economic self-sufficiency and a successful transition to adulthood.

Effectively linking these youth to the services, supports, and opportunities that can help ensure their successful navigation of these pathways often requires considerable coordination among youth serving systems. Yet, too often, youth serving systems face a number of obstacles to this coordination. Barriers at the local, state, and federal level including lack of data, limited understanding of best practices for data sharing, lack of accountability for data on specific populations of disconnected youth, and confidentiality concerns can make it challenging to provide comprehensive services to children and youth and build collaborative partnerships.

During this informative webinar, presenters will share information about new federal efforts to encourage greater cross-system coordination, promising state-level practices around data sharing, and a successful collaborative partnership at the local level to reengage youth who have dropped out of high school and assist youth who have graduated high school but are not currently employed.
