About Us

Youth Collaboratory harnesses the power of the youth services community to innovate, evaluate, and drive effective strategies that assure the safety and well-being of youth and young adults, unlocking their limitless potential.

We believe in…

  • rooting our work in practice and research.
  • advancing equity and inclusion.
  • focusing on long-term impact while nimbly responding to changing conditions.
  • tapping into the power of “many minds” to solve complex problems.
  • honoring and respecting people and relationships.
  • having a blast doing what we do and with whom we do it. 

We are known for providing high-quality, highly regarded training and consulting that successfully unearths local innovation and elevates effective practices. Through these targeted services, strategic national partnerships, and research-based program models, we operate across sectors to help youth-service providers focus on one goal: strengthening outcomes for youth and young adults.

In the last few years, our network has experienced significant growth – attracting innovators in practice, research, advocacy, and funding – and our core membership has grown by 250%. To make the kind of difference we want to make, we need to continue to build our capacity to educate and engage at a rapid and meaningful rate.

We operate as a distributed office - meaning you can work from anywhere in the USA with a reliable internet connection. More information about Youth Collaboratory can be found at https://apply.workable.com/youthcollaboratory/
