TGP Collaborative for Children & Youth


The Georgetown Project was created 16 years ago by a broad cross-section of community leaders to monitor the health and well-being of the young people in our community.   One way we accomplish this mission is by leading The Georgetown Project Collaborative for Children & Youth, a coalition of 30 youth-serving organizations that meets regularly to collect and publish child and youth data, map local resources, identify needs, and nurture collaborations that develop programs and services to fill the gaps.

The 2011 Snapshot of Georgetown Children & Youth highlighted emerging needs and opportunities for enhancing youth services of The Collaborative practices.   Ready By 21 Leadership Strategy is for improving youth outcomes.

The Collaborative meets the first Wednesday of each month at 11:30 at the McKinney Center of First United Methodist Church, 410 University Avenue, Room 1001. (Bring your own brown bag lunch)  The upcoming dates are:  November 6 and December 4 (or click on Upcoming Events on homepage for dates). 

VISION:
A community where no child is hungry, hurt, alone, or rejected...and where all children and youth believe they are loved, respected and treated with dignity.

MISSION:
Assemble regularly representatives from nonprofit, business, government, faith, healthcare, education, law enforcement, social services, philanthropists, parents, grandparents, youth, and community volunteers……..
