Created by the Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs (IWGYP), FindYouthInfo.gov promotes the goal of positive, healthy outcomes by promoting enhanced collaboration at the federal, state, and local levels; disseminating information about critical resources; and developing an overarching strategic plan for federal youth policy, as well as recommendations for improving the coordination, effectiveness and efficiency of youth programs, using input from community stakeholders, including youth.
