Introducing the Reconnecting Youth Project

In this four-minute video, Louisa Treskon, a Senior Associate in MDRC's Youth Development, Criminal Justice, and Employment policy area, introduces the Reconnecting Youth Project. Its goal is to understand systematically what programs and practices are available in the United States to support young people who are not connected to school or work as they transition into adulthood. It focuses specifically on services to help them reconnect to education, obtain employment, and advance in the labor market.
