Youth & Student Initiative

  1. 1. + Youth & Student Innovations An integrated and comprehensive approach to generational economic opportunity, prosperity, and community engagement Mentoring Interning LaunchingTutoring
  2. 2. + Overview   Thousands of national, statewide, and regional/community programs in place   Fragmented across demographic, population, community, scholastic, science-technology themes   Billions of public and private sector dollars targetingYouth and Students – including philanthropic resources – but rarely seen in a holistic, linked pathway (approximately $17 billion per year)   Little organization nor operating models in communities along a continuum of common purpose, performance, metrics, and outcomes   Technology, social media, and better targeting of communications, outreach, and engagement can leap-frog current challenges   Focusing on economic opportunity, prosperity, and innovation cuts across geography, populations, and business models
  3. 3. + Stages ofYouth and Student ‘Engagement’ for Knowledge and Economic Prosperity Stage1 Mentoring: Linking Real- World Life Experiences and New Knowledge through Community & Civic-led Institutions, Organizations Stage2 Tutoring: Identify and Connecting Student Needs with Cost- Effective and Efficient Expertise for Improved Learning and Scores Stage3 Interning: Connecting Students to Their First Career, Job, Life-Skill through Regional Corporate and Industry Sector Programs Stage4 Launching: Beyond Traditional Entrepreneurial Programs, form Dormcubators, Just-in-Time Innovations, Idea Factories and Small Scale Investments Note: initial inventory of programs, initiatives, events, resources suggests most activities fall into these four categories and stages
  4. 4. + Case for Integration   By creating a continuum of services, information, resources, and engagement, youth and students can access the critical knowledge needed to complete course work as well as seek immediate employment and business development   As an individual advances along the continuum, the service model makes the progression easier and affordable   Partnerships seek one-stop, packaged, and measurable results- oriented solutions; such partnerships include corporations, foundations, public sector officials, and economic communities/regions   Technological platforms exist and are emerging that strengthen the integration models for a continuum of services and business activities   Monetizing the continuum model is evident and tested already
  5. 5. + Goals: Immediate and Long-Term   Create technology platforms that minimize barriers for integration while advancing revenue generation   Create a network of communities/regions, partnerships, and campuses that can establish ‘brand/market-share’ of no less than 30% within one year   Create a delivery system that attracts the best-in-class content, leadership, resource partners, and obviously youth and students   Create additional methods for revenue generation including reinvestment and charitable giving for purchase of ‘time’ packages, content roll-ups, and content sharing   Create long-term value for repeat customer loyalty through unique campaigns, incentives, and national/regional contests
  6. 6. + Unique ‘Delivery’ towards Goals   Leverage Generation Internet Networks (GIN)/Tutor Matching – and similar existing and evolving technology platforms on Facebook, other Social Media, Phones,Tools   Leverage GINS/Collegia/Other Networks across campuses, communities, and corporate/philanthropic institutions   Leverage Popular Media and Related Social Media interests in Youth and Student Progress/Performance/Prosperity – a grassroots scenario in urban AND rural America   Leverage Expertise through Thought-Leadership Forums, Briefings, and Reports – leading to recognition AND new content models   Leverage Funding Sources as Drivers of Idea/Pilot-Development – federal, state, and regional grants and contracts in need of tested solutions
  7. 7. +Vehicle: “Youth and Student Collaboratory”   National “platform” that brings together Mentoring, Interning, Tutoring, and Launching as a one-stop operating model   Serves as a potential 501c3 for addressing side-by-side relationship building, thought-leadership, and engagement support for acquisition of other related services, products, and programs – as well as sponsors for youth and students that cannot afford such on-going expenditures   Hosts national and regional forums and roundtables on the future of youth and student learners, innovators, technology-users, economic ‘engines’ in communities, institutions – creates a National Scorecard   Identifies trends, forecasts, and ultimately demand for new ideas, products, services, and leverage of the Youth and Student enterprise capabilities and capacities; provides research, survey, and other forms of data, information, insight to issues and opportunities in the youth and student arena.
