Young adults in the United States today face the challenges of achieving financial and social independence—while forming their own households—at a time of economic uncertainty. The Special Issue on America's Young Adults offers policymakers and the public a better understanding of these young adults in order to support them more effectively.
AIR supports educators and their students, as well as national, state and community leaders in the continuing effort to provide opportunities for personal growth for all—whether they are students in preschool, K-12 or higher education. Our work spans a broad range of areas, from early childhood development to professional development and training techniques that expand career opportunities and worker productivity. We conduct rigorous quantitative and qualitative research that identifies effective programs and resources and also provide the technical assistance to translate reliable evidence into effective action.
