A Guide to Partnering With Young Leaders to End Youth Homelessness, a new resource developed by the Youth Action Hub, highlights how communities can engage and partner with young adults who have experienced homelessness in an effort to prevent and end youth homelessness. The guide provides an overview of the importance of having youth partnerships as a catalyst for change since they offer unique insights and expertise on policies and programmatic practices to address the needs of that population. It includes a series of training tools for assessing and strengthening current youth partnerships, and for starting a new youth collaboration.
On Tuesday, April 16, 2019, the Youth Action Hub of the Institute for Community Research will be hosting a transformative hands-on workshop to actualize authentic youth partnerships in our work to end youth homelessness in Connecticut. This training is designed for professionals working in the campaign to end youth homelessness. Individuals and organizations that are participating in a statewide working group, task force, the 100 Day Challenge, the Coordinated Access Network, or regional Youth Engagement Team Initiative (YETI) are invited to attend this workshop.
The Youth Action Hub at the Institute for Community was created in 2015 to provide youth leadership and partnerships in policy, advocacy, and research towards ending youth homelessness and is supported by the Melville Charitable Trust and the Center for Children’s Advocacy. YAH works in collaboration with the Reaching Home Campaign to prevent and end youth homelessness in Connecticut.
