Eduployment: Creating Opportunity Policies for America's You
The paper, Eduployment: Creating Opportunity Policies for America's Youth, calls for powerful "opportunity" policies to address the crisis in education and employment for youth in the United States, especially our young people who are falling through the cracks in public systems of education, child welfare, and juvenile justice. The paper introduces the concept of "eduployment," which recognizes that learning and work are inextricably linked and opportunity policies for youth must prepare young people for postsecondary success, rather than the outmoded college or career tracks.
Mobilizing a Cross-Sector Collaborative for Systemic Change: Lessons from Project U-Turn, Philadelphia's Campaign to Reduce the Dropout Rate

Cities across the country seeking a coordinated strategic approach to reducing dropout rates look to Philadelphia, where a sustained cross-sector partnershipâ??Project U-Turnâ??has made significant advances in putting struggling students and out-of-school youth on the public radar and improving options for that population. Project U-Turn is a citywide collaborative campaign that focuses public attention on the dropout crisis and designs strategies and leverages investments to resolve it.

Philadelphiaâ??s experience can help other cities understand how they can shape an agenda to improve youth outcomes, and develop a staffed cross-sector partnership that can move beyond institutional silos and sustain a commitment to improving youth outcomes.
