    The National Youth Employment Coalition (NYEC), a national network of member organizations dedicated to improving the effectiveness of organizations that help youth become productive citizens, is pleased to announce its newest publication, Promoting Postsecondary Success of Court-Involved Youth: Lessons from the NYEC Postsecondary Success Pilot. The paper is based on NYEC's work on the Postsecondary Success Initiative (PSI), a national pilot launched in 2009 that supports ten community-based organizations that support formerly disconnected youth and young adults ages 16-24 during transition to and through postsecondary education. Promoting Postsecondary Success of Court-Involved Youth is based on in-depth interviews with seven PSI sites that work with court-involved students as part of their PSI programs. The paper includes an overview of relevant research, highlights practices that were implemented by the PSI sites to support postsecondary access and success of court-involved students, and provides recommendations for practice and policy and systems change.

    Many communities have shown tremendous commitment to youth employment. The return on investment and effort, however, can be greatly multiplied if federal youth funds, discretionary funding, resources from other youth serving systems, and community resources are brought together to build comprehensive youth employment system. Key elements of such a system include: a strong convening entity, an effective administrative agent, a well-trained case management arm, strong partnerships across systems that serve youth, and high quality work experience and career exposure.
