Youth Master Plan Steering Committee Responsibilities

  • Youth Master Plan Steering Committee:
    Role Description & Responsibilities


    CYPB’s general purpose, as outlined in ACT 555 and the City Ordinance, is to assist in the assessment, alignment, coordination, prioritization and measurement of all available services and programs that address the needs of children and youth. As the local planning board, CYPB is intended to encourage collaborative efforts among stakeholders for assessing the needs of children and youth and for assisting in the development of a comprehensive plan to address those needs. The Board’s purpose and intended deliverables will be realized through the successful development and implementation of a Youth Master Plan for New Orleans.

    Youth Master Plan Steering Committee Composition
    CYPB members will serve as the cross-sector stakeholders tasked with plan development, as outlined in CYPB’s State legislated and City ordinanced purpose. Additional sector leaders/actors will be invited to serve on the Youth Master Plan Steering Committee to ensure inclusion of the most comprehensive array of sectors and voices needed to develop the comprehensive plan.

    Youth Master Plan Steering Committee Role Description
    The committee helps to steer the Youth Master Plan forward from start to completion. This is done by providing support, advice, guidance, oversight of progress and ensuring delivery of the Youth Master Plan outputs and the achievement of Youth Master Plan outcomes.

    Committee Members may not work on the Youth Master Plan themselves. Generally, the Project Manager (CYPB Staff), and other members of the Youth Master Plan Partnership Team (Mayor’s Office of Youth & Families, New Orleans Youth Alliance) actually do the work ensuring successful development, delivery, and implementation of the Youth Master Plan, reflecting the support from the Youth Master Plan Steering Committee.
