YouthLink helps youth and families find their TEAM for success. Friends, family, community members, and professional agency members work together to reach family goals.
TEAM Meetings were developed through a collaborative process with agencies participating in the Logan County Interagency Oversight Group for Collaborative Management (YouthLink).
The purpose of a TEAM meeting is to engage youth and families together with support people and professional service providers in a structured meeting led by a trained facilitator where decisions are made and goals are set related to school attendance, disruptive behaviors, service coordination, basic family needs, compliance with juvenile justice terms and conditions, substance use, or goal-setting for life in general.
Why have a TEAM Meeting?
By utilizing TEAM Meetings, families have the opportunity to see an increase in the quality, appropriateness and effectiveness of services by participating in a collaborative process.
Concerns that may prompt a TEAM Meeting request include, but are not limited to:
Uncooperative or disrespectful behavior at home or at school
Substance abuse: drugs/alcohol/smoking/vaping
Friends - lack of, or negative influence of
Recent change in lifestyle
TEAM Meetings utilize a Two-Generation approach. On the continuum of the 2Gen approach, the majority of TEAM meetings are child-focused with parent elements.
