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. 

Our greatest strength lies in our ability to engage and retain a dynamic network of hundreds of organizations across all 50 states. Together, we are able to advance the work of communities in real-time, raise the level of conversation around key issues, increase cross-sector communication, drive national research, and increase support. In the last few years, our network has experienced significant growth – attracting innovators in practice, funding, and research and our core membership has grown 450%. But 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.
