What does it take to re-engage young people in school? A new brief from the Center for Promise features insights from the Tucson Unified School District Dropout Prevention Team and Tucson’s Youth on the Rise to help answer that question. More Than a Village: Perspectives on Re-engagement in Tucson, created with support from Pearson, is the second part of a two-part research series about high school re-engagement efforts in Tucson, Arizona. The first piece in this series, I’m Going Back: The Re-engagement Experiences of Tucson Youth, presents young people’s perspectives about the barriers and supports to re-engagement.
More Than a Village outlines the barriers and supports to re-engagement from the perspective of adults working in the re-engagement space in Tucson. Its findings are critical to helping program designers and managers expand their understanding of re-engagement efforts and the role of adult staff in supporting positive youth outcomes.
