Turning Points: How Young People in Four Career Pathways Programs Describe the Relationships that Shape Their Lives
This report from the Center for Promise is the second in a series that focuses on career pathways programs that serve at-risk youth. The first report, Relationships Come First, introduced the four programs located in Dallas, TX; The Bronx, NY; Washington, DC; and the San Francisco Bay Area. This report presents key findings from group and individual interviews with young people enrolled in the four career pathways programs. The researchers looked at the nature of the relationships the youth developed as their webs of support and how these relationships have helped them work toward personal and professional goals. The report includes personal stories and illustrations from youth study participants.
