The Zoeza Institute is a network of centers that provide a comprehensive set of services to support the successful career transition of troubled youth in dependent care settings. The Institutes physically operate in dedicated and established non-traditional (out-of-home) care settings. A special site development process is utilized to customize an integration and operational approach for each Institute. Staff and affiliated members are each certified to protect the well-being of the youth served and ensure proper training and competencies for specific work profiles.
Through the three primary service areas of Mentoring, Consulting, and Knowledge Management, the Zoeza Institute hosts a variety of events to enhance the learning practicum for members and promote the work of the Institute for enhanced participation. Partners from all sectors contribute to the Institute’s interventions and solutions and supplement core programming areas. Finally, the Institute takes special care to measure the benefits and impact of delivered services to help improve operations, share best practices, and evaluate return on investment.
