The (Re)Connecting Youth framework includes 2 to 4 targeted peer-to-peer learning exchanges between one or more U.S. youth-serving organization(s) and a global youth-serving organization, with the goal of sharing promising practices from abroad with the U.S. organization(s).
Organizations are matched based on what the U.S. organizations express as their needs in order to offer more effective youth services or programs. Global NGOs that can offer expertise or proven approaches that may help to meet those needs are paired with the appropriate U.S. organizations.
The U.S. youth-serving organizations will benefit from the exchange by participating in workshops, trainings, or document sharing focused on the global NGO’s methodology, in addition to site visits to see programming in person.
The global NGO will receive increased visibility for promising practices and will have the opportunity to educate others about their programs and practices within the U.S. youth development space.
