NYCYF events provide opportunities for Youth Funders to network, share lessons learned, explore new challenges facing New York City youth, and examine the City’s philanthropic and public response to these issues. The network also creates venues in which local funders can learn from youth programming, research, and policy experts, both locally and nationally. In addition to in-person meetings, NYCYF uses diverse vehicles including webinars, conference calls, LIST-SERVS, and policy briefs to communicate with its constituents.

Time:8:45 am - 11:00 am

The New York City Youth Funders and Philanthropy New York invite youth funders in the public and private sectors to attend this symposium on October 6, 2016.

Please join us for this important session focusing on successful community/school partnerships and the best strategies for implementing these collaborative ventures.  Objectives for this session include:

  • To demonstrate the power of school/CBO partnerships in advancing outcomes important to both entities, including good youth development practice;
  • To surface best practices in successful school/CBO partnerships that funders can look for; and
  • To surface potential challenges that funders may be able to address through the way they invest, convene, provide technical assistance, etc.

A panel of leaders in this field will discuss:

  • How their partnership was generated and what components are needed to form a successful partnership (planning, communication, training/professional development, curriculum, shared measurement/outcomes, etc.
  • Challenges particular to their partnership
  • The value added of this partnership for staff and participants
  • How funders can best support and invest in these partnerships to assure their success
  • Possible paths for scaling initiatives to reach a larger network of schools/CBOs

Speakers from the following initiatives will address these issues:

  • The STEM Educators Academy (a project of ExpandEd Schools, the New York Hall of Science; the Institute of Play; and the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum)
  • Leading to College (a project of CAMBA, Brooklyn College, and the School for Democracy and Leadership)
