Hear from two states that embarked on a path to collaboration through the Shared Youth Vision project. Learn how New Hampshire and Rhode Island have embraced a journey to effect change to provide an array of services to youth and young adults. In New Hampshire, the process has created one state team, a pilot project team, and twelve local teams focused on collaboration, partnering and resolving gaps in serving multiple state agencies’ neediest young people. In Rhode Island,the partnership has expanded services through the 16 Youth Centers in the state, where partner agencies are collaborating to avail young people opportunities through multiple pathways to education and employment. State Team representatives will share their experiences for bringing together partners to make this partnership a true
collaborative and systematic approach for a cross delivery system for young people.
