Building Capacity and Bridging Research, Practice, and Policy

Drawing on their relationships in the policy world and expertise in youth development, the Forum for Youth Investment helps the Foundation build connections and facilitate meetings between researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and funders.

In the coming year, the Forum will organize a capstone meeting for our research-practice partnership learning community and develop a website to share resources on building and maintaining successful collaborations. Forum staff will also organize meetings focused on the use of research evidence in policy and practice; mentoring and career development for young scholars of color; and federal research and evaluation work.
