Webinar Series: Using What Works to Improve Child Well-Being
Communities can spend hundreds of millions of dollars each year on children and families. But how do they know these extensive efforts are working to help young people along the road to success? And how can they shift from tackling expensive, chronic problems to intervening earlier — preventing problems before they even begin?
The Forum for Youth Investment and the Annie E. Casey Foundation will host a series of webinars to share tools and strategies developed as part of its Evidence2Success framework, now operating in several communities around the country. Evidence2Success tools help system leaders and residents come together to gather data, identify priorities and select proven programs to improve outcomes for children and families.
