As a member of the Executive Team for an organization serving vulnerable children, you have been tasked to prepare a report summarizing the development of a program to support these children. Your task as an experienced manager hoping to convince others to address the problem is to prepare an Issue. The brief should be between 4-6 pgs in length (not including bibliography); single spaced with one-inch margins using a 1012-point sized font. It is to be presented in a format that clearly outlines content marked with headings for the following sections:
Topic: Dual Status Youth also known as Crossover Youth
Nature of the Problem: facts on the nature of this problem, (incidence, prevalence, special needs of this population)
Risk Factors: the individual, familial and community risks that have contributed to the problem,
Policy Implications: relevant policy initiatives or laws around the problem,
Case for Support: why it makes sense (and cents) for the community to support this population and fund programs to support the problem,
Collaborating Systems: other systems that may also be serving these children,
Protective Factors: the protective factors that may be lacking in the families of these children,
Program Models: at least three program models or evidence-based interventions to improve the outcomes for these specific children and families in the child welfare system,
Current Resources Available- resources already available to address the issue and support the population, and
Prevention: discuss ways that the problem could have been prevented from affecting children altogether.
