CJJR is proud to announce the release of its latest, CYPM Spotlight Report, featuring the Harris County Youth Collective’s youth partnership initiative. Through support from the Houston Endowment, CJJR has partnered with the Harris County Youth Collective (HCYC) to support their Dual Status Youth Initiative. A crucial component of this work is to create true partnerships with youth and young adults that have systems experience. Through meaningful collaboration, HCYC and its youth partners help shift the trajectory of their lives in a positive way and influence broader systems change. This Report highlights the challenges and successes of HCYC’s effort and provides jurisdictions in pursuit of real youth partnership lessons to build upon. You can read the Report in full below:
To learn more about the work discussed in the Report, please participate in a webinar on September 18th at 2:30pm ET. The webinar will feature youth involved in this effort and the HCYC staff that developed and fostered this work. To register for this webinar, click on the link below.
