This brief explores the ways youth-employment program providers can help young people who are out of the labor force and out of school obtain valuable work experience or further education. The analysis draws upon experiences and lessons learned from a recent day-long event that was sponsored by The Rockefeller Foundation and hosted by the Urban Institute in partnership with the Urban Alliance. That event provided a framing for how youth-employment program providers can partner with other experts, students, businesses, and technologists to improve how program data are collected and used to improve the lives of young people.
