Youth Participatory Action Research – Pathways Project

About This Study

The Pathways Project investigated the ways that youth leverage their experiences in “Connected Learning” (CL) programs for accomplishing future goals. We are curious about the next steps that follow when young people, particularly those from nondominant racial, ethnic, or class backgrounds, complete their participation in CL programs and transition to new tasks in their lives, whether for further education or sustainable livelihoods. We know that there is inequitable access to opportunity, which is more than just about skill development but also about social networks and institutional recognition in the “last mile.”
