Beyond City Limits: Cross-System Collaboration to Reengage Disconnected Youth (2007)
This report describes how eight different cities have launched cross-system initiatives and what they have accomplished through these new collaborations. Their efforts vary greatly and involve a broad array of partners. The experience of all eight cities suggests that simply opening a dialogue about the gaps between public systems serving young people can yield major dividends, and that the benefits of collaboration become evident even when as few as two key agencies start working together. Cities profiles include Albany, New York; Boston, Massachusetts; San Diego, California; Baltimore, Maryland; Corpus Christi, Texas; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; San Fransisco, California; and San Jose, California.
