Purpose: The role of the Youth Engagement Team Initiative [YETI] is to build on the existing the crisis response system to help meet immediate and longer-term needs of unstably housed youth and young adults within the Coordinated Access Network [CAN] region.
Engage youth, schools, youth-serving agencies, Local Implementation Service Team [LIST] members, providers, designated Coordinated Access Network [CAN] representatives, and other stakeholders in the efforts to develop, implement, and evaluate a coordinated community plan to prevent and end youth homelessness by 2020.
Work in collaboration with youth and youth adults to refine the existing crisis response system to better engage, assess, serve, and house homeless youth and young adults in each community.
