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 10–12-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.
