The third panel for day one of Addressing America’s Poverty Crisis explored ways to support disadvantaged youth. Philip Levine of Wellesley College, Amy Schwartz of New York University and Bridget Terry Long of Harvard Graduate School of Education introduced their proposals offering dynamic, evidence-based ideas for improving the lives of poor adolescents. These ideas include developing a better model for mentor programs, the importance of summer youth employment programs, and ways to improve remediation to improve higher education achievement for disadvantaged students. The authors were joined by Deputy Mayor Linda Gibbs of the Health and Human Services of New York City. The discussion was moderated by Cecilia Rouse of Princeton University.
