Urban Institute
Urban Alliance serves at-risk youth through its high school internship program, which provides training, mentoring, and work experience to high school seniors from distressed communities. The program aims to help youth move on to higher education or employment after graduation. The Urban Institute is conducting a six-year, randomized controlled trial evaluation of Urban Alliance's high school internship program. This report presents findings on participating youth in Washington, DC, and Baltimore during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 program years; it shows how the program affected these youth in early adulthood, including their college attendance and job preparation. The following are appended: (1) Survey Methodology; (2) Differential Attrition; (3) Full Sample and Subgroup Impact Tables; and (4) Survey Instrument. [Additional support was provided by the World Bank Group's Community Outreach Program.]
