We recent­ly teamed up with Foun­da­tion Cen­ter to cre­ate a spe­cial col­lec­tion of resources focused on the mil­lions of young peo­ple ages 1624 who are not in school or work­ing — often called dis­con­nect­ed youth.

In a post on Foun­da­tion Center’s blog , Casey’s Bob Giloth talks about the new Issue­Lab col­lec­tion, which brings togeth­er near­ly 140 reports, eval­u­a­tions and oth­er pub­li­ca­tions from non­prof­its and foun­da­tions across the country.The post also high­lights the Foundation’s com­mit­ment to cre­at­ing more oppor­tu­ni­ties for young peo­ple and describes our invest­ments to that end, which have grown sig­nif­i­cant­ly since we released Youth and Work: Restor­ing Teen and Young Adult Con­nec­tions to Oppor­tu­ni­ty in 2012.

Casey com­mis­sioned this library in hopes of shar­ing the lat­est promis­ing prac­tices, insights and research — as well as how peo­ple are grap­pling with such issues as address­ing the trau­ma young peo­ple have expe­ri­enced and advanc­ing racial and eth­nic equi­ty — in one con­ve­nient place. We hope oth­ers will con­tribute addi­tion­al resources to fur­ther bol­ster the col­lec­tion, build our knowl­edge and inform our efforts so that even more young peo­ple can real­ize their full potential.
