Resident Engagement and Leadership to Improve Results for Children and Youth, Families and Communities: An International Toolkit
Annie E. Casey Foundation
"Engaging Residents to Improve Results for Children and Youth, Families and Communities" is a "Toolkit" that is the product of an international working group composed of delegates from six participating nations--Chile, Ireland, Israel, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States. In 2002, the working group set out to identify and share the best examples of resident engagement in results-based work from their respective countries. Participants hoped the product of their work, this Toolkit, would achieve three goals: (1) To describe the overall "results-based" approaches on behalf of children and families that are being used in the participating nations, both at the local and national levels; (2) To share information about effective strategies that are being used to ensure that residents are at the forefront of these efforts; and (3) To make available the "tools"--i.e., the techniques, methods, processes and products--that have facilitated resident leadership and engagement in each country. The Toolkit is designed to assist residents and parents, as well as other practitioners and "change agents," who are working in community change initiatives that use a results-based framework. The Toolkit suggests activities and resources that have proved useful on many levels for other communities that have sought authentic and sustained involvement of community residents. In addition, the Toolkit may be useful to policymakers, elected officials and members of public and private service agencies and community organizations who are promoting the well-being of children, families and neighborhoods; the case studies of projects and initiatives, in particular, may help them to see the value of working in partnership with residents.
