Next Generation Youth Work Coalition
The National Institute on Out-of-School Time partnered with The Forum for Youth Investment as champions for action with the Career Pathway's sites in San Diego and Long Beach, California. This included leading research aspects of the project as well as working to anticipate the site's needs for information, support and tools in a variety of areas.
The Next Generation Youth Work Coalition brought together individuals and organizations dedicated to developing a strong, diverse after-school and youth development workforce that is stable, prepared, supported and committed to the well-being and empowerment of children and youth. We believe that this entails progress in at least five key areas: standards and competencies; professional development and training resources; learning delivery systems; career ladders and compensation guidelines; and research and evaluation systems.
