Workgroup Goals

  • Develop a comprehensive list of existing resources to support children, their families, and providers serving those 8 – 18 years of age.
  • Identify gaps in services based on survey data/needs assessment data.
  • Help support the development of needed programs as identified through the needs assessment process.
  • Develop a countywide Speakers Bureau listing – COMPLETED!

2023 Collaborative Accomplishments

  • An electronic version of the Adolescent Resource Guide was developed and a postcard with a QR code to access it was distributed at the Community Resource Fair, to all school districts at the beginning of the school year, as well as to the CSCB membership. It was updated in January, and the committee continues to monitor and identify additional supports to be included, and additional locations to market it. A link to the Adolescent Resource Guide can be found on the banner of the CSCB website.
  • A comprehensive speakers bureau was created on a variety of adolescent topics and is available to any group, committee, or school that would be interested in a presentation.
  • Work is underway to expand the workgroup membership to be more inclusive of all types of adolescent services.
  • The workgroup is in the final stages of creating and disseminating a survey that will be completed by youth to identify what supports they believe they would benefit from. This data, once collected will assist the committee in developing future goals.
