New Company Aims to Strengthen Community Collaborations for Youth

The Forum for Youth Investment announced March 8 the launch of a new company to help community coalitions better serve youth. The Forum, a nonprofit that advances tools to improve the opportunities and outcomes of young people, is partnering with Community Systems Group (CSG), Inc. to form Community Systems Group, LLC.
In a news release, the Forum said CSG, LLC will help coalitions diagnose the causes of specific community issues and develop plans to address them through services including:

  • Developing monitoring systems to capture the activities of coalitions and analyze their impact.
  • Helping to decide what data to collect (including well-being indicators) and how to ensure its quality.
  • Creating evaluations to help coalitions improve their organization and processes.
  • Evaluating programs and interventions that the coalitions support.

Joining these forces to improve coalitions for young people at the local level, the new company hopes to boost collective impact for youth.
