Youth create outreach videos for re-engagement programs

One of the priorities in the Road Map Project Opportunity Youth Action Plan  is to increase awareness of and access to re-engagement programs. After young people involved in planning said they would not call or visit a program they knew little about, they decided to address this by developing outreach videos for programs with unfilled seats.  

Planned and developed by youth, these videos feature three local re-engagement programs -- places where young people can reconnect with education and employment and transition to college pathways. Hear directly from young people about how YouthSource, Multi-Service Center and iGrad helped them get back on track. The videos were created with support from Reel Grrls, SOAR, the King County Youth Advisory Council and the Road Map Project. 

Please share them with your networks!

Road Map Project endorses Best Starts for Kids levy

The Road Map Project has endorsed the King County Best Starts for Kids levy proposal.  Best Starts for Kids is an initiative to improve the health and well-being of King County residents by investing in prevention and early intervention for children, youth, families and community. Recent data show the need in our region is growing; students and families are facing increasing rates of poverty and homelessness. Best Starts for Kids will invest early in children's lives, with strategies focused on young children and pregnant women, then use prevention efforts to sustain those gains. Equity is a core principle of Best Starts for Kids, a commitment shared by the Road Map Project. To read more, please click here to view a press release. 

King County Executive Dow Constantine will speak about Best Starts at the Sept. 17 Education Results Network meeting. Don't miss it!
