Mathematica is conducting extensive research on programs that focus on the critical transition from childhood to adulthood, with a particular focus on youth at risk of not achieving self-sufficiency. Vulnerable youth include those growing up in poverty, teen parents, and those who have dropped out of school. We are studying strategies for addressing these and other risks and are providing policymakers with reliable evidence to inform policy debates.
