The Four Pillars Model of Sustainability Planning

A primary concern for any grant-funded programming is what will happen when the grant ends and that funding is no longer available. To ensure that you can continue to serve your communities, the Four Pillars Model  (Internal Support, Marketing and Outreach, Partnership Development, and Resource Development) provides an effective strategy for sustainability planning. 


Marketing and Community Outreach are Key to Sustainability Planning

The Four Pillars Model (Internal Support, Marketing and Outreach, Partnership Development, and Resource Development) provides an effective strategy for sustainability. The second pillar, Marketing and Outreach, is crucial in and of itself, nut it is also a pathway to the other three. How? A clear articulation of the program and its benefits is the foundation of Marketing and Outreach, and it also serves to generate Internal Support (Pillar Number One).With an organization fully on board, it can then more effectively look outward for the help needed to carry programs into the future with the other two pillars: Partnership Development and Resource Development. Without question, Marketing and Outreach will also help the organization achieve these last two objectives. Click here to learn more about Marketing and Outreach.


Our Journey Together: Helping Youth with Juvenile Records

Interested in learning about services or resources available to formerly incarcerated youth and the practitioners who serve them?  We know that many of the individuals who have a criminal record face various restrictions that can affect their ability to obtain employment, housing, public benefits, and access to other rights and benefits. It is critical that the workforce system has the knowledge and resources that will help youth they serve succeed. Click here to learn more.


Youth Voice on Gender Stereotypes Amplified by Social Media
Using a ‘youth as partners’ approach, pediatric residents in Fresno, CA recently engaged middle and high school students from low-income communities in an international social media campaign to raise awareness about the impacts of gender stereotyping on minority youth. Two-thirds to three-quarters of the nearly 300 students involved reported having experienced pressure to conform to gender stereotypes in their own communities. The project demonstrates how educational technology can boost young people’s voices in an effort to combat harmful stereotypes encountered online. Click here to learn more. 


Understanding Youth Mobility in Order to Improve Services

Results from interviews with eight homeless service providers in New York’s Capital Region suggest that the high mobility of RHY may be an impulsive coping strategy related to limitations within the service system in small cities, suburbs and rural areas. Findings suggest that more emphasis on trauma-informed care, filling service gaps, and reducing policy barriers may help young people stay engaged in services over longer periods which can lead to better outcomes.
