Forgotten and Left Behind: Shifting Narratives and Exploring Policy Solutions for Vulnerable Youth and Young Adults

December 7, 2017 CLASPThis report from the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) provides key insights and next steps from CLASP’s 2017 convening, which addressed the need for a multi-generational, multi-racial, youth-centered dialogue around policy change. Participants recognized that young people should drive the agenda for a stronger, healthier, more just, and more equitable future. The convening engaged 36 participants—including young leaders, researchers, funders, advocates, federal and state decision makers, and program practitioners—to explore relevant data and research; interrogate myths and incomplete narratives about young people; and discuss policy implications and systemic solutions for advancing youth well-being and economic mobility.
