    This toolkit takes users through four key stages to identify and define a program to provide disconnected youth with skills for employment and adulthood. During the first stage, employers take an assessment which will guide them to select one of three “lanes of engagement” (Soft Skills Development, Work Ready Skills Development, or Learn & Earn—see diagram on page 8 for definitions and examples of these lanes). The second stage takes employers through an exercise to define the scope of their company’s work with disconnected youth. The third stage guides users through a plan to build their company’s pilot program. The fourth stage sets employers up for ongoing program development and refinement so that they can transition their pilot to an ongoing program that delivers measurable value to the business and to participating youth.

    The Cultural and Linguistic Competence Implementation Guide was developed by the TA Partnership through its Cultural Competence Action Team (CCAT). The goal of the Implementation Guide is to translate the theoretical construct, values, and principles established in Towards a Culturally Competent System of Care (1989); provide and update existing standards for CLC; and translate the limited research available in this area into practical, feasible, and concrete strategies that can assist communities to make cultural and linguistic competence a reality. The major premise of the Cultural and Linguistic Competence Implementation Guide is that CLC must be infused throughout every aspect of the system of care. This requires transformation at the policy, administrative, practice, and consumer levels of service. (author abstract)
