Plymouth Youth Center Longitudinal Study Year 3 Report

Published Date







The purpose of this study is to track the long-term education and vocational outcomes of Plymouth Youth Center (PYC) high school students. The first report (Spring 2005) summarized data from 19 former students who left PYC during the 2003-2004 school year. The second report described educational and employment trends for 18 former students, including 7 who left PYC during the 2004-2005 academic year and 11 who left during the 2003-2004 year. CURA supported research on this third report, which summarizes data from two groups of students: (1) the 25 students who responded to the Year 3 survey, including 9 who left PYC in 2005-2006, 8 who left in 2004-2005, and 8 who left in 2003-2004; and (2) all of the students who responded to the survey in their first year after leaving PYC throughout the three years of the study. Highlights of the results from both groups are summarized.
