Next Stop, CHICAGO! 2016 Youth Development Symposium / by Tressa Dorsey

Tressa Dorsey and Aaron Leson will be facilitating the Youth Outreach & Recruitment Workshop at the 2016 Youth Development Symposium in Chicago, Illinois. Reaching the target population of a program for young people is often easier said than done. As the expectations become higher and more specific, the quality of outreach and recruitment efforts become vital for timely outcomes and goal achievement. Falling behind on recruitment expectations and timelines, negatively impacts project development and staff morale. This workshop will provide participants with specific guidelines for assessing, refining and/or improving efforts, such as; 

  • Develop an action plan outline for their own program based on group activities designed to learn how other projects conduct outreach and recruitment across the country; 

  • Learn how to evaluate partnerships and identify what types of partnerships can be strengthened to improve referral pipelines; and 

  • Identify and exchange best practices to bolster tangible action steps and clearly link those actions steps to desired outcomes.
