Community Summit on Youth December 10: Achieving Youth Results & My Brother’s Keeper

Monday, December 7, 2015

A Community Summit on Youth in Ithaca December 10 will address three critical questions concerning local youth:
1) How well are the young people in the Ithaca City School District and throughout Tompkins County doing?
2) How will we know if our youth are doing better? Or worse? 
3) What actions can the community take to improve youth results?

Answering these questions is behind both the Achieving Youth Results initiative being led by the Tompkins County Youth Services Department and the Presidential My Brother’s Keeper Challenge adopted by the City of Ithaca.

Superintendent Dr. Luvelle Brown (Ithaca City School District), Incoming Town Supervisor William Goodman (Town of Ithaca), Director Amie Hendrix (Tompkins County Youth Services Department), and Mayor Svante Myrick (City of Ithaca) will host the Community Summit on Youth on Thursday, December 10, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the Southside Community Center.

This free and open event will allow community members to discuss how to support youth in their achievement of success. Attendees will be provided with an overview of Achieving Youth Results (http://tompkinscountyny.gov/youth/AYR) and My Brother’s Keeper (http://www.mbkchallenge.org/)  as well provided the opportunity to:

  •  Look at recent data about Tompkins youth to determine progress or lack of progress
  •  Analyze and identify the causes and forces at work in the community that are influencing the trend
  •  Identify other important partners who can help to improve the progress toward youth-related goals
  •  Brainstorm “what works” to improve the indicators of progress
  •  Prioritize the best strategies and develop action steps to implement these strategies
  •  Discuss next steps with community leaders in developing an Action Plan for Youth
