Ready for college and work

A recent report from Child Trends addresses the question: What is the intersection of skills, competencies, and assets needed for college, work and the successful transition to adulthood? The study covers five domains of youth development: physical, psychological, social, cognitive, and spiritual. It also addresses the challenges of these special populations: low-income and minority youth, English language learners and immigrant youth, youth with disabilities, disconnected youth, foster youth, and sexual minority youth.

According to its website, Child Trends is "a nonprofit, nonpartisan research center that studies children at every stage of development."
