MDRC’s new project, “Reconnecting Youth: Putting Out-of-School, Out-of-Work Youth on a Path to Self-Sufficiency,” is seeking information about programs that provide services to help young people ages 16 to 24 advance on education and employment pathways. 

This project is focused on the population of young people who are out of work and out of school, sometimes called disconnected or opportunity youth.

The information gathered will result in a public compendium that profiles selected programs operating in this area, particularly innovative programs. The project is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is being done in partnership with Child Trends. 

To ensure this project reaches the full range of programs operating in the United States, including new and innovative programs, we are seeking your recommendations. Please use this webform to tell us about programs that you think we should consider for this project. We look forward to hearing from you!  Please also share this with your colleagues who may be interested.
