After five years in operation, youthCONNECT’s achievements are encouraging. In that time, six unique organizations came together and developed a commitment to collaborate to better serve youth.
Between 2010 and 2015, youthCONNECT network partners served nearly 22,000 at-risk young people, ages 14 to 24, across the region through education, healthy behaviors, and career readiness programs.
Additionally, youthCONNECT partners gained valuable experience from one another through shared work and collaborative efforts.
