YDC Community Investment Strategy
The funding model used by the Youth Development Council was created following a 6 month-long Community Engagement Process in the fall of 2013. Council members and staff visited more than 30 communities, and conducted more than 100 meetings around the state with youth, parents, educators, legislators, community leaders, tribal leaders, and non-profit providers to learn about what is working well, and where there were gaps in services. The second component of work toward creating this Community Investment Strategy was a data and research analysis on current policy and indicator trends as they relate to youth disconnecting from school and work. This led to the creation of foundational principles and the strategy the council would use to put funds to work in communities to improve the lives of Priority and Opportunity Youth.
