This report presents findings from an exploratory impact evaluation of the New York City Performance Partnership Pilot (P3) program, which enhanced youth workforce services for young parents. We find that after leaving the program, NYC P3 enrollees had better outcomes than the comparison group in their occupational training participation rate, participation in other education and job-oriented services, high school equivalency credential attainment, and education/training enrollment and credential attainment. On average, NYC P3 participants earned high school equivalency credentials nearly four months sooner than comparison group members. We do not find significant impacts on employment or earnings. The report concludes with recommendations for policy and practice.
