Title:Improving education and employment for disadvantaged young men: Proven and promising strategies
Organization:Urban Institute
Short Description:Low high school graduation rates and sharply declining employment rates continue to plague disadvantaged youth, especially young men. This paper reviews the evidence base on programs and policies such as youth development for adolescents and young teens; programs seeking to improve educational attainment and employment for in-school youth; and programs that try to “reconnect” those who are out of school and frequently out of work, including public employment programs.
