About the Partnership
The Partnership for Children, Youth, and Families is a 501(c)3 organization committed to promoting positive youth development at the local, county, regional, and state levels of New York. The Partnership works with the Association of New York State Youth Bureaus to provide mentoring and support for Youth Bureaus and their local partners.
How Can the Partnership Help
Partnership Board members have considerable experience in planning, implementing, evaluating, and coordinating youth development programs and systems. We are offering our time as mentors and consultants to support new and existing Youth Bureau staff. Our goal is to supplement, not replace, the technical assistance available to Youth Bureaus from other sources. We seek to promote peer support among youth service professionals so that our system can better serve the children, youth, and families of New York State.
How Does It Work
Partnership members are available to consult by phone or email with individual Youth Bureaus on the topics listed. In some cases, Partnership member(s) may be willing to attend a regional Association meeting to discuss a topic of shared interest. Since the time and expense of providing technical assistance may vary, the amount of time and type of contact will be negotiated upon a specific request for technical assistance.
