The Iowa Collaboration for Youth Development is a dynamic, evolving partnership of state and local entities concerned about youth and youth policies. This interagency initiative is designed to better align state policies and programs and to encourage collaboration among multiple state and community agencies on youth-related issues. The goals of the initiative are to promote the use of positive youth development principles in state policies and programs and to facilitate the use of effective youth development practices in communities throughout Iowa.

Since January 1999, representatives from twelve state agencies and several local agencies and private organizations have been meeting to discuss youth development issues, to build consensus on a youth development framework, to promote youth development principles and practices, and to pursue three broad objectives:

  1. Better coordinate and align state policies and programs related to youth using a positive youth development framework;
  2. Identify or develop resources for use at the community level to promote youth development and to facilitate planning and implementation of effective youth development programs; and
  3. Increase youth involvement in state and local level policy discussions and decision-making.
