Building Partnerships: In Support of Where, When, and How Learning Happens focuses on the critical role youth development organizations play in young people’s growth and development.

Created by the National Commission’s Youth Development Work Group, the brief provides a framework for broadening our understanding of where, when, and how students learn, both in and out of school and during the summer. It highlights examples from across the country of local partnerships that support youth.  Building Partnerships also recommends ways for educators, policymakers, and funders to partner with youth development organizations, capitalizing on formal and informal learning settings that support young people’s success.
