A Framework for Understanding What Kids Need to Succeed As Adults

A new report released yesterday brings together decades of research from many fields to show that children need more than academic knowledge alone to succeed in life. Foundations for Young Adult Success: A Developmental Framework names seven key factors to life success, shows when and where they develop, and details the kind of experiences (blending action and reflection) that build them. It offers far-ranging evidence and pulls everything together into a handy two-page infographic.

Written by the University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research (UChicago CCSR) and funded by The Wallace Foundation, Foundations for Young Adult Success offers invaluable knowledge to anyone working with young people both in and out of school.
