Anchorage Youth Development Coalition

On September 26, 2001, United Way of Anchorage convened a meeting with approximately 40 key youth providers to propose the vision for a sustainable comprehensive youth development-planning model. The participants all agreed in principal that the need and benefits of such a model would justify a shared investment in the costs. The group requested a business plan and suggestions of how the model would operate. Since then, a series of meetings have been held, a steering and other committees formed, and work has started on a resource mapping project called “dashboards.”
