Vulnerable Youth: Background and Policies
Adrienne L. Fernandes-Alcantara (au)
Approx. 60% of parents today provide financial support to their adult children who are no longer in school. Even with this assistance, the current move from adolescence to adulthood has become longer and increasingly complex. For vulnerable (or äóģat-riskäó¯) youth populations, the transition to adulthood is further complicated by a number of challenges, including family conflict or abandonment and obstacles to securing employment that provides adequate wages and health insurance. These youth may be prone to outcomes that have negative consequences for their future development as responsible, self-sufficient adults. The federal government has not adopted a single overarching federal policy or legislative vehicle that addresses the challenges vulnerable youth experience in adolescence or while making the transition to adulthood. Rather, federal youth policy today has evolved from multiple programs established in the early 20th century and expanded in the years following the 1964 announcement of the War on Poverty.
