February Updates


ICYMI, sharing Measure of America's A Decade Undone: 2021 Update from July, which was a follow-up to last year’s A Decade Undone: Youth Disconnection in the Age of Coronavirus. The report shares how the pandemic has increased youth disconnection rates and the national picture of youth disconnections. Check it out here.


The Center for Law, Brain & Behavior has released a white paper that shares updated research perspective on late adolescence for policy makers and practitioners. Learn more here or download the white paper here.


For anyone who works with youth who have experienced incarceration: a new research study is looking at how people make sense of juvenile incarceration. Anyone who has been incarcerated before age 18 and is currently age 18 or older can participate and will earn a $15 Amazon gift card.  If interested, please email Chase at to receive a link to the online survey.


The MYTC Learning Exchange Series is an opportunity for front-line staff from different youth serving agencies and organizations to share ideas, resources, and tools for working with similar populations of youth. These gatherings will have a topical approach. See the attached graphic for more session information, or click here for the google form where you can choose from the list of sessions.
