Center for Law and Social Policy, Inc. (CLASP)
This policy brief was prepared for the "Investing in Boys and Young Men of Color: The Promise and Opportunity" briefing held in June 2014 that was co-sponsored by National Council of La Raza, PolicyLink, the Executive Alliance to Expand Opportunities for Boys and Young Men of Color, and the Institute for Black Male Achievement. The briefing discussed education and employment solutions that communities of color have implemented for boys ages 12-24. It also lifted up the voices of young men who these innovative programs are helping to transform. This brief provides information on the following: (1) drop out prevention and recovery; (2) interventions to prevent high school dropout and support student recovery and reengagement; (3) preparation for college and careers; (4) strategies to ensure young men of color are college and career ready; (5) postsecondary access and affordability; and (6) innovations to increase postsecondary access, affordability, and attainment.
