Youth & Family Council
The Youth & Family Council reviews, shapes, and promotes policies, priorities and strategies of the Partnership.
The Council’s key areas of responsibility include:
- Representing Key Community Constituencies — Systematically gathering and providing insights from members of the community on Partnership policies and priorities.
- Approving Strategic Priorities — Utilize data and lived experience to approve strategic priorities prior to presentation to LT for final approval.
- Leveraging Community Power and Resources — Work with their own constituencies to communicate and advocate to enact the Partnership’s equity agenda, including efforts to mobilize public support.
