RHY Resources

Tool Aims to Improve Ways that Partners Share Resources

Jobs for the Future and Forum for Youth Investment created a step-by-step guide for assessing programmatic barriers affecting youth, gaps in services and funding restrictions that prevent communities from achieving cross-sector goals. Based on learning from Performance Partnership Pilots (P3), the tool helps people identify who is responsible for identified barriers, and how to make changes—for example, by submitting waiver requests to funders for new uses of funds. RHY providers can use this tool to learn about blended funding approaches, and improve resource sharing in the local community.

Map Shows the Rise of Rural Homelessness

The Institute for Children, Poverty and Homelessness created an infographic exploring the rise of rural homelessness across the U.S. Data examined by ICPH indicates that homelessness among rural students is growing at a significantly faster rate than that in urban areas. This information can be useful for educating community members about the existence of rural RHY, and the need for additional resources in rural areas.

New Comic Series by Youth for Youth

Young people engaged with RTC Pathways to Positive Futures have created a comic strip whose main character, James Jones, is a high school student with depression who relies on his dog for support. The comics show James facing day-to-day challenges in school and in community. RHY providers can share these with young people as a way to open conversations about mental health, or to inspire program participants to find creative ways to share and explore their own lived experiences.

Screening Tools for Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

This technical assistance tool was developed by the Center for Healthcare Strategies to describe approaches that several different organizations use to screen youth and young adults for adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) – including which screening tools they use, how they administer it, documentation considerations, and how to act on results. RHY programs can use this resource to inform their selection of a screening tool for RHY, and to educate health providers in their community about ways to promote trauma-informed care through screening.
