Electronically published journal article, but not part of an issue

No

Abstract

This report highlights Opportunity Youth Forum (OYF) communities that are working to improve policies and programs for opportunity youth, who are 16- to 24-year-olds out of work and school. The OYF began as a group of 21 community collaboratives and has grown to a network of more than two dozen urban, rural, and tribal communities. Roughly one-quarter (about 1.2 million) of all opportunity youth in the United States reside in or near OYF communities. The authors discuss evaluation findings that demonstrate the variety of strategies being employed across the network

Abstract

This report from the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FSYB) presents the results from a collaborative initiative with the Children’s Bureau called the Support Systems (SSRHY) for Rural Homeless Youth: A Collaborative State and Local Demonstration. This initiative focused on improving the circumstances of rural youth by strengthening their connection to support services, community, education, and employment. The SSRHY Demonstration funded six projects in rural areas of Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Vermont. Each project worked with transition age youth who had few or no connections to supportive family structures or community support systems. The report outlines the key findings from each project related to collaboration, services, and youth outcomes.

Abstract

The Urban Institute designed this toolkit for individuals, governments, and organizations currently working on a pay for success (PFS) project or considering initiating a PFS project. This assessment tool describes the core elements of PFS projects and explains the importance of each core element. It also provides stakeholders with a scoring system to help distinguish the strengths and weaknesses of a proposed project and generates recommendations for remedying any weaknesses. Stakeholders can use this tool at any stage of project development. Completing this assessment also helps build the business case for a proposed project that scores well in each area.

Pay for Success Feasibility Tool Kit: Considerations for State and Local Leaders
Electronically published journal article, but not part of an issue

No

Abstract

This toolkit from the US Department of Education provides general information about Pay for Success (PFS) projects, which are projects that support evidence-based approaches by leveraging private investment to address societal problems and challenges while typically using government funds only when a project meets measurable, positive outcomes. This toolkit is an introductory guide for state and local governments and other stakeholders interested in exploring the possibility of a PFS project for education or related societal issues. It provides information to support stakeholders in determining if PFS is a viable financing strategy for them, lays out steps usually involved in conducting a feasibility study, and highlights critical questions and important safeguards to consider in using PFS. The Appendix includes tools that may be useful for PFS projects, including definitions of terms used throughout the document.

Nine Guiding Principles to Help Youth Overcome Homelessness: A Principles-Focused Developmental Evaluation

Nine Guiding Principles to Help Youth Overcome Homelessness: A Principles-Focused Developmental Evaluation
Electronically published journal article, but not part of an issue

No

Abstract

This book chapter describes an evidence-based, principles-focused developmental evaluation that was part of a larger grant program funded by the Otto Bremer Foundation, a private foundation serving the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. The foundation provided grants to six local youth-serving agencies to address youth homelessness in the Twin Cities. The developmental evaluation was initiated to create a process by which the six agencies could collaborate to improve the outcomes for youth and identify and empirically validate guiding principles. To meet these goals, the researchers engaged the foundation and agency leaders in collaborative evaluation inquiry during monthly reflective practice meetings, which included analyzing 14 youth case studies. The developmental evaluation process resulted in a principles statement and dissemination packet to be used by the agencies going forward. (author abstract modified)
