Improving Youth Programs and Outcomes in Washington, D.C.
Far too few young people in the District of Columbia transition successfully to adulthood by completing high school, earning a post-secondary credential and finding employment. As of 2013, 9 percent of all 16-24 year olds in DC fell into the category of disconnected youth â?? not enrolled in school, not employed, low-income, and with low levels of education. These are findings from a new report, â??Improving Youth Programs and Outcomes in Washington, DC,â?? by Brookings Fellow Martha Ross and education and workforce strategist Mala B. Thakur, formerly the Executive Director of the National Youth Employment Coalition. The report argues that the poor educational and employment outcomes among many D.C. youth programs demand a serious and sustained response by the city, funders, educators, nonprofits, and employers. The authors offer the following recommendations: 1) Invest in performance management and quality improvement at the program level, supporting organizations in rigorously reviewing how they can do the most good for those they serve 2) Develop a more coherent system providing progressive levels of education, training, and support services to prepare young people for jobs and advancement.
