Junior League of San Diego Solutions Summit and TAY Outcomes

Solutions Summit 2016-2017

The Junior League of San Diego invites you to its third annual Solutions Summit on March 22nd and 23rd in 2017, held at San Diego’s downtown Central Library! Solutions Summit is a two-day collaborative conference focused on addressing some of the most pressing challenges facing our transition age youth (TAY) population in San Diego. In our previous two events, Solutions Summit brought together attendees from over 40 organizations for two days of discussion and active problem-solving surrounding these challenges. The focus of the Summit was to create solution roadmaps that would create pathways to success for these foster youth.

The outcomes of the Junior League of San Diego Solutions Summit are eight roadmaps and a collective way to move forward in key areas affecting the success of TAY. The Junior League of San Diego focuses on advancing these roadmaps to continue the momentum of active problem-solving that occurred during our previous Summits. With the continued participation of Solution Summit attendees, these roadmaps will be further developed, assessed, and implemented in phases over an appropriate timeline.

In 2017, Solutions Summit will build on the successes of our TAY Outcomes Task Forces roadmaps by focusing on “Strengthening the Road”. Within this year’s theme, our Steering Committee has identified the following topics to review and refine the continued needs of our youth:

Housing: Communication around housing programs, eligibility, and education around how to manage leasing agreements/housing search.

Wellness:
Expanding on family planning, parenting/parent self-care, and healthy relationship building.

Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC): Recognizing/maintaining healthy relationships, preventing victimization, and understanding red flags.

The Junior League of San Diego is proud to be a part of this dialogue and a driver of change for the TAY population. Please contact us at to learn more about this collaborative event. Stay tuned for more information about Solutions Summit 2017 and special guests!

A special thank you to Nathan Aish, Walfredo Don, Melanie Delgado, and the Just In Time LEAP Council for participating in the development of the 2017 topics and ensuring we collectively focus our efforts on the most pressing challenges facing our TAY.

TAY Outcomes:

The outcomes of the Junior League of San Diego Solutions Summit are six roadmaps and a collective way to move forward in key areas affecting the success of TAY. A Junior League of San Diego committee will focus solely on advancing these roadmaps to continue the momentum of active problem-solving that occurred during those two days. With the continued participation of Solution Summit attendees, these roadmaps will be further developed, assessed, and implemented in phases over an appropriate timeline. The Steering Committee for the third annual Junior League of San Diego Solution’s Summit is already exploring the topic for the 2017 Solutions Summit. We are proud to be a part of this dialogue and a driver of change for the TAY population.

A special thank you to Mary Malony, Molly Mesnard, Angela Aceves, Leigh Quijada, Nathan Aish, Rajah Gainey, and Melanie Delgado for participating in the development of the 2016 topics and ensuring we collectively focus our efforts on the most pressing challenges facing our TAY.
