Youth who qualify for service through the State of Colorado's Collaborative Management Program and need assistance achieving a school related goal may be eligible to receive aid through YouthLink’s flexible spending policy. Student goals may vary, but must be related to school success.
Examples of the types of financial assistance YouthLink may offer to help with, as it relates to a student's goal, include transportation costs, activity fees, providing equipment to participate in a sport or activity, paying tuition for special classes, purchasing school clothes or school supplies, funding for incentives or rewards for students, etc.
All students who participate in TEAM Up for Success must have an identified goal coach who assists and documents the student's school-related goal(s). The coach and student will work together toward success with the goal, and will have access to goal coaching tools and resources sponsored by YouthLink.
