Youth Collaboratory membership offers individuals and organizations a way to benefit from deeper engagement with our services and the larger community. 

Group of people interacting

Membership leads to bigger wins and measurable impact, improving the lives of young people, their families, and communities. Our members support the youth services field to be more equity- and youth-centered, research-driven, and effective.

We engage over 200 members nationwide, and each of us has a critical role to play in strengthening our community. Together, we unlock funding opportunities, increase connection and success, and help ensure the safety and well-being of youth and young adults.

Impact of Membership

Members achieve big wins for their organizations and the youth services community. We have supported our members by:

  • Developing and distributing research-driven program models, resources, and services that better address the complex challenges facing youth, young adults, and youth serving organizations.
  • Providing nearly $6 million in subcontracts in the last 5 years to support local practice innovation.
  • Protecting and growing federal funding alongside a strong collective of key allies, with our national advocacy initiative directing $1,033.1 million to the youth services field from 2021 through 2023 and building public support for youth homelessness programs and mentoring grants.
