Do you ever feel like well-intentioned people around you are working hard but, to borrow a cliché, it looks like the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing?
Sometimes, the left hand even holds the right hand down. That’s because policies, practices and funding streams that have been instituted over many years by many different people aren’t aligned – and young people suffer. This webinar highlighted concrete examples and specific policy language at the local, state and federal level. Participants learned how they can improve policies and align resources to maximize their positive impact on youth.
Featured Speakers: Thaddeus Ferber, Vice President for Policy, the Forum for Youth Investment
Michael Gamel-McCormick, Education and Disability Policy Advisor, Chairman Tom Harkin, Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions
