The Intermediary Guidebook: Making and Managing Community Connections for Youth.
Miller, Marc; Kazis, Richard; Trippe, Steve; Eagleson, Glenn; Porter, Lois Ann
This guidebook summarizes learning on the role of intermediaries and how to build organizations that perform intermediary functions effectively and efficiently. An introduction defines intermediaries, in the context of youth-serving systems, as staffed organizations that connect schools and other youth-preparation organizations with workplaces and other community resources so young people can combine learning with doing and become better prepared for postsecondary learning and careers. Part I details the strategic and operational functions of intermediaries. With 14 real-world examples, this part demonstrates the diversity of experimentation across the nation, while highlighting common features of effective intermediary entities and activities. Part II elaborates on a five-stage model that describes the process of connecting schools and youth-serving organizations with workplaces and community resources. Part III outlines issues that organizations involved in the School-to-Work Intermediary Project have identified as critical to sustaining intermediaries linking schools and workplaces. Part IV explains how to use a set of design and implementation tools developed by the project to assist local youth-serving efforts. The appendix provides details on the project, including a summary of its activities, information on contacting members of the Intermediary Network, and the directory to a companion CD-ROM available separately.
