Results Based Accountability
Our Youth Intervention efforts are city-wide systemic initiatives to divert youth from the justice system and involvement in gun violence. These programs provide specific supports and services for youth at significant risk to put them back on track for success in education and employment. These initiatives are focused on a four part strategy:
Our youth development efforts include systemic initiatives that focus on programs for in-school youth to ensure academic success and engagement in school and community. The focus of this work is to improving the quality of the out of school time services and resources available to youth and their families through the implementation of a range of educational, enrichment, cultural, work preparedness and recreational programs.
Accountability & Capacity Building
Division for Youth is committed to strengthening the accountability, coordination and responsiveness of the youth services system in Hartford. We fulfill this goal through a range of professional training and technical assistance opportunities aimed at front line workers, middle managers, and executive directors. These include conferences, professional training series and stand-alone trainings on topics identified by the provider community. Division for Youth also uses a web-based data management system called Hartford Connects II powered by Efforts to Outcomes, to track information on all programs and initiatives funded through the office.
