New Ways to Work

New Ways to Work is a consulting, technical assistance, and training organization that helps communities build comprehensive local youth-serving systems, develop new programs and partnerships, and improve practice in the organizations that serve young people.


New Ways has spent the past 30 years learning how to help people work across systems to leverage resources and expand opportunities for youth, especially those youth facing challenges in the transition to adulthood.


New Ways helps create powerful partnerships among government, education, the community, philanthropy, and the private sector to provide young people with the opportunities and support they need to prepare them for success in career and life.


New Ways has worked with local government agencies, youth councils and workforce boards, schools and school districts, community-based organizations, businesses and employer groups, private foundations, and corporations to help clarify key issues and opportunities, build effective partnerships, and design and implement approaches to improve outcomes for youth.
