The Youth Works Model

The Council believes that fundamental to the creation and growth of a sound, inclusive youth investment system that can sucessfully engage and develop our emerging workforce, is the commitment and ability of key state and local community leaders to position, support, and grow the capacity of collaborative efforts involving grant funding and/or otherwise.  The Youth Works-A Workforce Development Model focuses on how our community can create an environment/system that addresses the interests of family, business and industry, K-12 education, workforce development, youth groups, community and faith-based organizations, local government officials, and others.  Click here to see more of our Youth Works Model.
