Pull It Together

Enhance and expand youth program experiences by creating and strengthening partnerships. Because of limited time, money and resources, partners are an excellent way to supplement and enrich existing programming options.

Train staff in how to identify areas where partners could help, recognize the most appropriate potential partners and sustain partnerships over the long term. Help staff build skills to 

  • Assess program effectiveness and where improvements could be made
  • Share the program vision and why it is important to the youth you serve
  • Work collaboratively and effectively with partners
  • Maintain and sustain partnerships over time

Tools to Use

Use the Strengthening Partnerships Implementation Planner to map for success.

Share excitement and strategies with the field in the Discussion Boards.

Select and customize staff trainings under Teach.
