Description

The Los Angeles County Office of Youth Diversion and Development and My Brother’s Keeper Initiative partners are collaborating on two consecutive days of shared learning and networking for the 2019 Youth Development Summit. Each day will have a unique focus but will be unified by a commitment to connecting a wide range of stakeholders interested in effectively and equitably improving outcomes for youth in Los Angeles County and reducing youth involvement in the justice system.

Please note:

We can accommodate a maximum of 5 people from any one organization. If your organization would like to request an exception, please contact Taylor Schooley at tschooley@dhs.lacounty.gov for Day 1 or Vincent Holmes at vholmes@ceo.lacounty.gov for Day 2.

Day 1 — Thursday, July 18th | Reflections from the County’s Youth Diversion and Development Initiative

Hosted by the Office of Youth Diversion and Development and partners, the purpose of this day will be to share updates from the first year of implementation from the YDD Initiative and offer opportunities for networking and shared learning.

In particular, our goals are to:
  1. Convene a wide range of stakeholders interested in youth diversion - including youth-serving providers, community advocates, youth, researchers, county agencies, and law enforcement agencies - and offer chances to share their stories with one another and participate in learning sessions.
  2. Set the foundation for the expansion of youth diversion programs across the county.
  3. Set the foundation for a collaborative planning process focused on building a model for YDD's role in supporting a countywide youth development strategy.

Day 2 — Friday, July 19th | Building a Just & Equitable Future for Los Angeles County's Youth

Hosted by the My Brother's Keeper Initiative and partners, the goals of this day will be to:
  1. Develop a shared understanding of past and current youth development work.
  2. Highlight existing youth development efforts.
  3. Identify and connect various efforts in preparation for a collaborative planning process focused on developing a countywide youth development strategy.
