Incarcerated Youth Educational Pathways


In collaboration with the Research Collaborative on Higher Education in Prison, CHERP researches are examining how policies can improve educational opportunities for incarcerated youth.

Youth-in-Custody Educational Pathways

This project aims to gather information about educational pathways provided to youth-in-custody at Slate Canyon Youth Center and identify gaps in educational service delivery, opportunities for improvement, and coordination of services and programming. The project will culminate in a final report that documents current efforts, needs, and recommendations to enhance the coordination of and strategy for educational opportunities for youth at Slate Canyon.
