Keywords: Intervention; Roads to Success; Career Planning; Middle School

Type: Report

Coverage: United States


The Roads to Success program was launched in early 2005 to forge connections between students' school experiences and their aspirations for adulthood, as an ongoing part of middle and high school. This report describes the intervention, research design, evaluation data, analysis methods, and a comparison of baseline characteristics of the treatment and control groups.

Funding for the program and study was cut in 2008, so both are scheduled to conclude in 2009. The report also reviews the evaluation plan and possibilities for further research if funding is restored.
