Prepared by Jobs for the Future for the U.S. Department of Education, in this document, you will find an overview of “what works” when working with opportunity youth.
This resource highlights critical strategies and best practices, spotlights example programs, and identifies additional resources to support local practitioners’ efforts to improve outcomes for the young people in their communities. This is not an exhaustive survey of all of the information in the field, but it will provide practitioners with a portal to the knowledge that exists.
