Partnership for Results (The Partnership) is a model of local governance designed to implement a broad spectrum of evidence-based programs for the benefit of youth at risk. Operating in Cayuga County in Central New York, it has improved outcomes for children and youth and their families since its founding in 2000.
The Partnership has implemented over 25 evidence-based educational and human services programs.
Since the inception of the Partnership, a significant impact on youth outcomes has occurred. This includes the following:
Significant reductions in the number of youth reporting substance use within a 30-day period
Significant increases in standardized test scores, particularly in elementary schools with high poverty levels
Substantial declines in the rates of arrests for violent crimes and property crimes
Decreases by more than half in juvenile detention expenditures
Declines in the foster-care population
The model has been replicated in Washington, DC and other communities.
