Nashville Positive Youth Development Coalition Update

The Positive Youth Development Coalition is meeting regularly with action teams in marketing, youth engagement, quality standards, professional development, and membership. There have been over 50 youth serving organizations or government entities represented in the coalition so far.

Recently, the Coalition met with the Forum for Youth Investment to explore becoming aligned with Ready by 21. Ready by 21 has Search Institute as one of its partners and potentially is a natural progression for taking the work started around the coalition to the next level. The work from the two positive youth development initiatives, Healthy Communities-Healthy Youth Initiative and Quality Counts, continue to weave together on many levels to create a tapestry of positive youth development for Nashville.

Stay tuned to see how things turn out . . .
