Youth Outcome Development Plan
Transcript of Youth Outcome Development Plan
Standard 19 reads:
The Youth Outcomes Development Plan (YODP) is developed during the enrollment process and carried forward throughout the match support process as a guiding light for what all parties hope the match will achieve and how the Little will grow.
Though it is important that the child successfully grow according to the YOPD, it is very important that the approach not be overly prescriptive (e.g., the Volunteer Big saying that the Little MUST move from a D to a C in math).
The match always needs to be FUN, and the plan should be youth-centered (i.e. It should reflect what the youth wants to achieve him/herself).
It is through the fun experiences and support of the Volunteer Big that the relationship prospers.
Brainstorming use with SOR/YOS
As you do currently, during the enrollment period create strengths based goals with the child and parent.
Discussion of match goals.
YODP Match goals must be agreed upon by all parties.
Discuss with Big, parent and child at first match meeting, while ensuring confidentiality and using strengths based language.
Sign Match agreement that all parties agree to the goals.
Inform all parties that the goals will be discussed regularly.
Updating match goals
must be updated annually
, but can be updated as often as needed.
Where do we document all this progress?
will go in the general match screen with a specific date of update.
EG: 04/11/13: Match goals, 1. Teach LB additional healthy communication skills through creation of a positive relationship with BB. 2. Increase LB physical activity by participation in fun, outdoor outings.
Copy/paste match goals from child assessment into general match screen.
in the general match screen annually or as needed.
related to current goals in support contacts.
EG: LB and BB have visited the batting cages twice to encourage LB physical activity, one of the current match goals.
Document in the comm log to state that you have
updated or confirmed
goals, annually or as needed.
EG: PS reviewed current goals with LB and LBM. Updated and confirmed goals with LB and LBM.
Youth Outcome Development Plan
So, how do we create a plan?
Strengths based match goals!
Wait, I forget, what are strengths based goals?
Strengths perspective recognizes that resources can be tapped in from the social worker and the client, as well as the community.
The relationship between staff/client and Big/Little is approached as collaborative and avoids heirarchy.
The intent is to empower the client to actively engage in the change process.
This model acknowledges that the client already possesses skills, knowledge, resources, coping, resilience and abilities to meet their needs.
'You know what is best for you. I do not, because I am not you. You already have the skills and capabilities within yourself to accomplish those things you feel are best for you. I can help you identify those capabilities and skills.'
KEY IS TO USE CLIENT STRENGTHS TO MEET CLIENT NEEDS!
Child is quiet:
Increase communication skills (need) through observation of the Big’s interactions (strength) both within the relationship and with other individuals.
Child has difficulty with concentration:
Increase focus (need) through discovery of new and different goal directed activities (strength) with Big Brother.
Child struggles to get along with peers:
Build relationship and friendship skills (need) with Big Sister based on desire to have healthy friendships (strength).
Child has a history of abuse:
Continue encouragement of safe relationships (need) through creation and development of friendship (strength) with Big Brother.
Turning strengths into goals for areas of challenge
Match goals must be confirmed at RTBM reassessment if a child is waiting to be matched.
Use goals as a conversation starter during regular match support and update as changes are made or goals are accomplished.
