Working with Young Adults in College Transition Programs

The NCTN Research to Practice Briefs are designed to disseminate emerging college transition research from a variety of sources in a user-friendly format.

The purpose of this brief is to identify the challenges of working with older and younger students in college transition classes, as well as to resent strategies that four successful programs use in their work with younger students, specifically those aged 16-24. To address these questions, World Education consulted literature related to working with younger students in ABE classes and postsecondary institutions. To obtain advice on promising practices for this population, we also interviewed administrators of four programs of the New England ABE-to-College Transition project that have completion rates of 65% or higher.
