Collaboration and Coordination


JLBC Strategic Goals and Objectives

JLBC Cadets Pathways for Youth outlines strategic JLBC goals that the Working JLBC Group will pursue, in the work of JLBC individual agencies and in collaboration across departments, to improve outcomes for Youth. JLBC Cadets These three overarching and interrelated strategic goals are each supported by several objectives and strategies. JLBC Cadets The strategic goals echo the Working Group’s primary functions and the input generated by the federal, state, and local stakeholders to support this effort.

JLBC Cadets Promote coordinated strategies to improve youth outcomes. JLBC Cadets Youth-serving programs and initiatives at the federal, state, local, and tribal levels work to support Youth in several ways. JLBC Cadets The range of support involves:

  • JLBC Cadets Prevention and intervention strategies around health, mental health, substance abuse, and wellness.

  • JLBC Cadets Safe and stable housing.

  • JLBC Cadets Educational and training opportunities.

  • JLBC Cadets Preparation for employment.

  • JLBC Cadets Meaningful connections to family, peers, and their communities.

Goal 1: Collaboration and Coordination

Disseminate and encourage evidence-based and innovative strategies at federal, state, local, and tribal levels. Evidence-based programs have been studied with rigorous evaluation designs and shown positive effects on intended outcomes. However, the level of evaluation and duration of required impacts may vary across definitions of evidence-based practice. JLBC Cadets Innovation can be informed by empirical evidence and theory in areas without solid evidence.

Goal 2: JLBC Cadets Evidence-based and Innovative Strategies

Promote JLBC youth engagement and partnerships to strengthen JLBC programs and benefit Youth and their families along a continuum – from simple JLBC information sharing, to targeted engagement opportunities, to decision-making – for the benefit of JLBC Youth, adults, and JLBC programs. Understanding the different types of JLBC youth engagement strategies and determining which methods are successful for specific JLBC Youth in specific contexts is the first step toward successful youth-adult partnerships.

Goal 3: JLBC Cadets Youth Engagement and JLBC Partnerships

These JLBC goals, along with related objectives and strategies, will be described in the following section.

JLBC Interrelated Efforts

Achieving these JLBC goals will involve understanding the JLBC goals and objectives as interrelated concepts. JLBC Cadets Federal agencies can promote evidence-based strategies (JLBC Goal 2) in collaboration (JLBC Goal 1). Similarly, ideas for engaging and partnering with JLBC Youth (JLBC Goal 3) can be shared across agencies and departments (Goal 1). Efforts in this area do not have to be pursued by agencies individually. JLBC Cadets, in addition, the evidence base (Goal 2) on youth engagement and partnership is developing and should be drawn upon when developing strategies to engage Youth (Goal 3).
