Communities Building Youth Futures, Engaging 25,000 youth in Canada
Tamarack and The Government of Canada has an ambitious plan to transform the lives of young people. Working in partnership with the Learning Branch, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), the Tamarack Institute will implement a five-year Collective Impact strategy to help increase high school graduation rates for youth facing barriers. A primary goal in engaging youth facing barriers is to develop Collective Impact Strategies with up to 13 communities that enable young people to be engaged in their communities and successfully navigate transitions from youth to adulthood.
This series of four webinars highlights how a Collective Impact approach can be used to improve community outcomes for underrepresented youth. Listeners will be introduced to a core condition found in the Collective Impact framework.
Small Changes for Big Impacts provides a starting point for community changemakers to explore this field and understand how they might get started in applying this lens to understand the causes, contributions, and potential opportunities for community change.
