Moore’s current roles with the Institute include:
Assisting 30+ cities nationwide to develop or strengthen multi-sector partnerships involving city governments, community colleges, and business and community leaders focused on increasing postsecondary attainment as a key economic and workforce development strategy;
Supporting a growing national network of Dropout Reengagement Centers, which constitute key local infrastructure for increasing high school graduation and college and career readiness rates; and
Leading an exploration of municipal leadership roles in juvenile justice system reform.
During and prior to his time with the Institute, Moore has written and published extensively on youth development topics. He maintains a regular presence on the CitiesSpeak blog and on Twitter @AndrewOMoore.
Earlier, Moore spent 15 years building the nationwide network of service and conservation corps, and has consulted on strategic program development with the National League of Cities’ YEF Institute and other clients in the youth development field in the U.S. and United Kingdom.
Reengagement-Citywide Strategies Spreading Andrew Moore, has captured many of the issues and challenges facing cities and their partners that strive to provide a portal to re-engage out of school youth. This session will focus on the dozens of coordinated citywide efforts to re-engage out-of-school youth on positive educational pathways. The session promises an understanding of results to date, as well as a sense of the variety and continuous improvement and innovation underway. Andy will cover the impressive early accomplishments of re-engagement efforts in several cities, provide practical advice for those seeking to launch or formalize local re-engagement programs, and describe how re-engagement at scale could help solve the crisis of unfulfilled potential represented in America’s millions of young people without high school diplomas.
