Innovations in NYC Health and Human Services Policy: Young's Men's Initiative

Abstract

The New York City Young Men's Initiative is dedicated to reducing the inequities in adult success between young men of color and other young people in New York City. YMI has brought attention to the inequities between young black and Latino men and other young people and ensured that targeted education, employment, health, and justice policies and programs are a priority citywide. It is a model for harnessing the enormous human resources of young men of color toward economic progress for all. This brief is one in a series examining selected social service initiatives undertaken during the Bloomberg administration.
