Youth Resources Action Team
The Marion County Children and Families Commission has identified that we want to target youth ages 12-18. This focus on positive youth development falls in the category of family preservation and support; a strong value for the commission. Youth operate within the family which influences their outcomes. Family preservation and support is a key area for next year. At the Marion County Children and Families Commission meeting on October 22, 2015, the CFC elected to reconvene the Youth Resources Action Team through December 31, 2016.
The group will assess ways to align community resources to help the community become more effective in mobilization for positive youth development in Marion County. They will identify the key partners, funding sources, and community readiness to improve wellness outcomes for youth. They will present their recommendations to the CFC to determine the proper courses of action to take.
