2018-19 Opportunity Youth Coordinator
 
 
 
Our partnership is comprised of representatives from over 300 local organizations, working in networks to identify, align, and scale strategies that move the needle on educational outcomes. This includes ensuring all young people use postsecondary education or training to advance their opportunities beyond high school and prepare for a successful career. In the past year, the scope of this goal has been refined to include a citywide strategy to support out-of-school/out-of-work youth and young adults, referred to as Opportunity Youth. As a community we are asking the following question: for those youth who fall through the cracks, what must we do to ensure they get back on track? The VISTA will work closely with goal managers, network partners, and local subject matter experts on researching effective interventions, developing proofs of concept, organizing and deploying pilot projects, measuring impact, and developing strategies for sustainable scaling. The project’s objectives include: 1. Complete Milwaukee Succeeds and VISTA onboarding. 2. Research the community context related to Opportunity Youth in Milwaukee, review the collaborative process up to this point, and explore next steps for the partnership. 3. Guide partners in a collaborative process to collectively analyze/assess the current state of support for Opportunity Youth in Milwaukee and work toward a shared vision for re-engagement. 4. Develop, implement, scale innovation strategies that support Opportunity Youth to re-engage with either school and/or work.
