Youth Transitions Collaborative Leadership Council

The Youth Transitions Collaborative is guided by a Leadership Council of senior executives within the Collaborative. The purpose of this advisory group is to provide experienced leaders who can guide programming, preserve the organizational culture through turnover of staff, and act as advocates and spokespeople for the Collaborative and the National Youth Transitions Center. In addition, the Council assists the Collaborative by inviting and hosting influential speakers, researchers, advocates, media representatives and policy makers. Other specific responsibilities include reviewing the results of the annual evaluation of collaborative efforts, inviting experts to present best practices related to transitions to the YTC community, and bringing policymakers to the YTC to inform them of transition issues.
