New Ways works with local government agencies, youth agencies and workforce boards, schools and school districts, community-based organizations, businesses and employer groups, private foundations and corporations to help clarify key issues and opportunities, build effective partnerships and design and implement approaches to improve outcomes for youth. We help create powerful partnerships a to provide young people with the opportunities and support they need to prepare them for success in career and life.
We are experienced in a wide range of service strategies including delivering facilitated workshops and learning sessions, coaching cohorts of staff working on similar projects, building peer professional development systems, coaching executive level and program staff, and providing direct content trainings. In each case, we develop and implement the appropriate strategy to address the defined need in consultation with the client.
