Youth Alliance provides innovative, culturally relevant services to strengthen youth, families and communities.

"When we found out about PropelNext, one of the opportunities we looked at was how to better tell our story and to better equip our staff and families with the data and statistics that show by working in a compassionate, empathetic, strength-based way that positive success can happen.” - Diane Ortiz, Executive Director

With the help of PropelNext, Youth Alliance is becoming a more data-driven organization, looking deeply at its systems, data collection, and model to strengthen and expand its programs. Specifically, Youth Alliance is using data to improve its programming and demonstrate its success.
