The Community of Practice (CoP) of the Collaboration Council coordinates the training and education/academic programs for youth development practitioners working in youth-serving fields such as workforce development, mentoring, recreation, and juvenile justice, with a focus on disconnected youth ages 16-24.
The Collaboration Council seeks letters of interest/proposals from organizations and qualified individuals to conduct workshops identified from meetings and surveys of youth development practitioners in Montgomery County. This solicitation seeks to identify qualified trainers to deliver workshops with content that build/strengthen the core competencies of youth development practitioners and deepen the learning experience with facilitation guided by adult learning principles. A few solicited topics for reissue include:
- Motivational Interviewing

We are in need of an experienced Community Education Manager who can work with the rest of the Programs team to shape and implement an ambitious strategic plan. The manager is responsible for the overall planning and execution of wellness education at Manna Food Center including, with the Mobile Kitchen Coordinator, the activities of Manna’s Mobile Kitchen and other kitchen facilities.

On any given day in Montgomery County, thousands of disconnected youth (ages 16-24 who are neither in school or working) can be found in need of opportunity and reconnection to education or employment. In many cases, these youth aren’t easily identifiable and therefore aren’t steered toward reengagement activities that could improve their long-term outcomes. This solicitation seeks to identify and select a qualified community-based organization with strong ties to the East County community (Briggs Chaney, White Oak, and Burtonsville) and its surrounding neighborhoods. Qualified applicants will be organizations either willing to hire or currently having on staff at least two individuals who have lived experience having been disconnected in Montgomery County that can serve as “peer outreach connectors”.
