Federal Support for Youth Development
The Department of Labor has launched a new website to support Shared Youth Vision,a collaboration among the U.S. Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Justice, and Labor. The collaboration was formed to respond to needs identified in the 2003 White House Task Force Report on Disadvantaged Youth. The website provides reports from the three regional forums held last winter in Philadelphia, Chicago, and Phoenix.
The objective of the collaboration is to facilitate the development of policy and funding vehicles that will support State efforts to deliver much-needed services to disadvantaged youth. The website also provides links to resource materials that are valuable for ongoing collaborations at the State and local levels.
