There is a great need for a variety of alternative pathways to educational success, ranging from essential early intervention and prevention strategies in the early years, to a multiplicity of high-quality alternative options within mainstream K-12 systems at the middle and high school levels, and finally to opportunities outside of the mainstream for those unable to learn and thrive in the general education system. This paper reviews community- or district-based programs that have as their primary focus the re-engagement of out-of-school youth in learning in order to better prepare them to successfully enter high growth occupations and careers.
