Pathways for Youth Success
Young people need skills, knowledge, and confidence to successfully transition from high school to higher education or quality employment. This means providing high school-age students with a safe and welcoming learning environment, mentorship and emotional support programs that speak to their life experiences, and powerful learning tools. To be successful, these integrated educational approaches require not only input and buy-in from policymakers and educators, but the collective ownership of young people, parents, and communities. We believe that when political and education systems recognize the value and needs of vulnerable young people, the benefits accrue to all youth.
