Alexandria Releases Comprehensive Profile of Children and Youth Well-Being and Drafts First Children and Youth Master Plan


The members of the Alexandria Children, Youth and Families Collaborative Commission are pleased to announce the release of the Alexandria Children & Youth Well-Being Profile, the draft Children and Youth Master Plan and Plan Overview.     

The Profile contains data and the latest research findings that were used to assess the state of Alexandria’s young people. The data comes from public records, such as the 2010 U.S. Census. It includes information on students who participated in two surveys: the Center of Disease Control’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) and the Search Institute’s Profiles of Student Life: Attitudes and Behaviors Survey.    

As a companion document, the draft Children and Youth Master Plan provides a blueprint for improving outcomes for Alexandria’s children and youth.  This Plan outlines an actionable vision that applies data-driven strategies, and focuses on specific, measurable goals.  The Plan identifies priority areas, targeted outcomes, and sets forth a roadmap for creating positive outcomes.  Based on the collective impact on all segments of the community, the plan encourages stakeholders to engage in collaborative efforts through cross-sector partnerships and initiatives.    

Alexandria encourages all residents to get involved in addressing the issues raised by the Youth Profile and the priorities, goals and action strategies proposed in the draft Children and Youth Master Plan. Members of the community can comment on the draft Plan at the Comment Board, and attend one of the following community meetings where the Profile and Plan will be presented and input will be gathered.
