Family & Youth Roundtable
To promote excelllence in the public child, youth, and family service system through an independent network of youth and families.
Who we are:
The Family & Youth Roundtable is an independent family and youth-led organization. The foundation of our work is to build an interconnection between the families and youth receiving services and the public child-family serving agencies that serve our communities such as: Children’s Mental Health, Juvenile Justice, Education and Child Welfare
Our core value:
A genuine belief in partnership and engagement of diverse perspectives. In each perspective there is a belief that might result in a benefit for many. We are family and youth who have received services, so we know that partnering with our public and provider partners will strengthen families, build strong communities and improve outcomes.
What we do:
· Train Family and Youth on how to utilize their life experience to assist other families in navigating the public system and overcoming their challenges.
· Facilitate workshops for our public and provider partners that improve egagement and partnerships with families and youth. Our workshops develop community leadership skills that allow family and youth partners to become Part...nership Brokers, which enhances quality and outcomes of services.
· Provide a place for families and youth to support each other, share ideas, successes and concerns through our Family and Youth Council Networks.
· Offer coaching services for family and youth as well as professionals wishing to gain skills in building partnerships with each other.
