Event Details

Every year, hundreds of thousands of youth exit the juvenile justice and foster care systems, and many will struggle with transitioning to adulthood. Compared with their peers, they often have low levels of education and employment, and are more likely to experience poverty. Developmental approaches such as mentoring can be effective in helping these youth successfully transition to adulthood.

The American Institutes for Research invites you to a briefing highlighting developmental approaches to effectively transition youth involved in systems, the experiences and needs of these youth, and mentoring as a fundamental support to help reconnect youth to education, employment and community. Join our expert panelists who speak from personal and professional experience about what is being done to help these youth and what can improve moving forward.
