Collaboration Purpose

Iowa’s vision is that all Iowa youth will be safe, healthy, successful and prepared for adulthood. ICYD is focused on improving the lives and futures of youth (ages 6 to 21) in Iowa through interagency partnerships, collaboration, and coordination across ten state agencies.

Based on their vision and goals, ICYD has developed a results framework that focuses on four broad areas:

  1. All youth have the benefit of safe and supportive families, schools, and communities.
  2. All youth are healthy and socially competent.
  3. All youth are successful in school.
  4. All youth are prepared for a productive adulthood.

These areas are designed to guide youth policy, organize planning activities, and monitor youth development outcomes across state departments and agencies and at the community level.
