In the United States, problems like unemployment and underemployment, poverty, and incarceration are often exacerbated by disconnection from school or work at the crucial ages of 16-24. While this disconnection can have many root causes, successful strategies generally involve reconnecting youth with job training, employment, or education. At the local level, city staff and leaders, nonprofits, and school districts are working to implement evidence-based practices to prevent disconnection or re-connect youth with school, work, and other supports. At the same time, new research in this field is emerging, but it is not always accessible by practitioners.
Through this learning community, practitioners from cities, school districts, and nonprofits will interact with one another through virtual presentations, discussions and exercises. The content will be driven by practitioner demand and promising practices, as well as emerging findings from research.
