This report evaluates the Latin American Youth Center’s (LAYC) Promotor Pathway program. The program matches youth with a “promotor,” who provides intensive case management, mentorship, and advocacy, and aims to improve education and employment outcomes, boost life skills, prevent delinquency, and reduce unhealthy behaviors for at-risk youth transitioning to adulthood. Using a randomized controlled trial design, the evaluation assesses whether the Promotor Pathway program improved 18-month outcomes in educational attainment, employment, reduced births, residential stability, and reduced risk-taking behaviors. Participating youths had lower rates of births, higher rates of housing stability, and were more likely to seek needed services.
