Peer Technical Assistance (Peer TA) is a structured opportunity for teams of people from different jurisdictions to learn from each other's experiences. Casey Family Programs convenes such teams to develop plans that help improve outcomes for children and families.
Peer TA occurs through a facilitated process of joint problem solving between a team of individuals requesting assistance and a team of peer consultants who has first-hand experience related to the targeted issue. Examples of these issues include:
- Family Group Decision Making
- Maximizing Chafee funds for transitioning youth
- Strategies for administering Education and Training Vouchers (ETVs)
- Using cohort data to improve practice and policy
- Reducing disproportionality and disparate outcomes
- Privatizing child welfare services
The two teams discuss program development, implementation, and assessment. These discussions focus on practical, relevant information that takes into account issues related to political climate, power, and culture.
