Aspen Work Strategies Initiative (WSI) has released Connecting Young Adults to Employment. This report shares insights from service providers helping young adults connect to jobs. The report documents the results of a survey of hundreds of service providers nationwide, who described their experiences serving young adults. The report offers considerations for practitioners and policymakers working to assist the growing population of disadvantaged young adults (18-29) ready to enter today’s labor market.
The survey of 400 providers, representing 340 organizations across the United States, responded to the survey. They offered valuable insights on:
- What is considered a good employment outcome for their young adult clients;
- Strategies for connecting young adults to good employment opportunities; and
- Challenges in connecting young adult to good employment opportunities.
