Collaboration Profiles

The Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs (IWGYP) has developed a series of collaboration profiles to promote enhanced collaboration at the federal, state, and local levels. The profiles provide real world examples of the ways that different organizations work together to improve outcomes for youth.  Each collaboration is unique in their purpose, accomplishments, how they structure their work, the challenges that they face, and the types of organizations that are involved.
