The NH Youth Retention Initiative is a research program designed to deepen understanding of how youth and emerging adults are considered in efforts to retain and recruit young people as a key part of New Hampshire’s community, economic, and workforce development plans. As youth development and education researchers, we contribute to this work by exploring how different cultural and individual factors shape youths’ future planning in ways that expand or restrict the options they believe are available to them. We’re indebted to our community partners and funders who make our research possible.

Scholarly and applied products of this research can be found in this collection.
