The DeKalb Youth Prosperity Initiative is a holistic partnership of service providers, community organizations, educational institutions, government agencies, and residents in DeKalb County that aims to organize and deploy resources to achieve greater impact in the quality of life of individuals and families. The initiative adopted the Child Well-being Index, created by United Way, as a composite measure of holistic health and plans to use the instrument to benchmark progress. Violence prevention will be a focus area, with special emphasis on interventions that are likely to have broad health impact on adolescent development. Through optimizing services and resources, the initiative will leverage an integrated service delivery approach to achieve impact. The DeKalb Youth Prosperity Initiative will work with resident leaders, businesses, and community organizations to refine an integrated, school based services network that will: use real time data to identify children and families with potential needs; rapidly deploy supports to children and families experiencing vulnerabilities; invest in youth development to ensure that all children in DeKalb County thrive; and measure results across services and sectors.
