I never saw this Alayne. I am sorry for not responding sooner. These are opportunity youth - neither employed in a profession or enrolled in college that are part of a apprenticeship program in Providence. The program was interested in my study and agreed to voluntarily participate. It is hard to find opportunity youth or disconnected youth. The study gathers data from this population and compares it to young adults at Rhode Island College.
