Youth Development Collaborative Application

The Youth Development Collaborative is composed of agencies and individuals serving and advocating for youth. Members network, stay informed of current community services and programs, connect positive opportunities for youth and find solutions to identified youth issues in the community.

The Youth Development Collaborative’s goal is to:

Create pathways to connect middle-school and high-school-aged youth to education, career opportunities, resources, and programs that are primarily designed to enhance their:

Power Skills (aka Soft Skills)

  • Ability to interact effectively and harmoniously with others.
  • Ability to communicate with others in a variety of ways including verbal, nonverbal, written, and visual.
  • Ability to contribute to their groups and share responsibilities.

Technical Skills

  • Ability or knowledge needed to perform practical tasks in the areas of science, the arts, technology, engineering, math, and others.

The work of the Youth Development Collaborative focuses on middle- and high-school-age youth who may be:

  • Disconnected or without a sense of belonging to family, employment, school, or friends.
  • Low-income, but not exclusively.
  • From the immigrant population, but not exclusively.

Youth Development Collaborative team members serve for a term of two years after which they may self-select to renew their term or leave the group.

  • The Youth Development Collaborative meets monthly on Tuesdays, 8:30 to 10 a.m.
  • Due to the initial scope of work, the group will meet on Tuesdays, 8:30 to 10 a.m. every other week for the first six months.

The Youth Development Collaborative operates under a consensus model for decision making purposes.

Applications are due by midnight Monday, Aug. 15, 2022.
