We want to help more teens have a bright future and you can help! Multiple studies, including “Workforce Preparation in the Context of Youth Development Organizations,” show that a significant portion of the nation’s 42+ million teens leave school without the necessary knowledge and skills to participate in the 21st century workforce. This has led to the growing phenomenon known as ‘disconnected youth’ who are neither in school nor working. Studies indicate that there are currently 6.8 million disconnected youth in the U.S.
YALSA has submitted a grant proposal to the Knight Foundation to help libraries help teens. Your support by ‘applauding’ our proposal or sharing a comment. Thank you for taking action to help all teens become successful, engaged 21st century workers and citizens!
