Identifying and Addressing Barriers to Program Implementation: A Tool for Community Reflection
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.
