Referring youth to OFY Partner Services
The Educational Momentum Referral System came about because our Educational Partners realized that in order to truly assist their youth break down the barriers they may have and keep them in school, they needed to give them an opportunity to receive services that their educational institutions couldn’t provide. To bridge this gap, we created a referral system that would allow our Educational Partners to refer to our Reengagement Center Partners. One of the benefits to being a part of this action team, is that our Educational Partners are able to access a password protected Google Form on the Educational Momentum Action Team webpage on our website.
Partners are able to:
Choose a variety of services (food scarcity, housing, parenting, employment services, etc.) the youth may need
Select which Reengagement Center the youth should be referred to
Or they are able to select “Need OFY Recommendation” if they’re unsure and trained OFY staff will choose the best Reengagement Center for the youth based on their zip code and services needed.
We intend for this system to grow and to prepare for this, we are currently in the process of looking for a CRM system that can help streamline this process and ensure the youth are receiving services as soon as they are entered into the system.
