The Administration on Children and Families' Youth Demonstration Development Project is working to develop frameworks that youth-serving programs across the country could use to help youth develop job skills and become self-sufficient. The project's first report, "Synthesis of Research and Resources to Support at-Risk Youth," was released earlier this year.

The report describes what we know about at-risk youth -- their needs and their circumstances -- and outlines how at-risk youth are being served by ACF programs today. It highlights programs that have been shown to put youth on a path toward self-sufficiency and identifies issues to consider as the Youth Demonstration Development Project moves forward.
