Youth at Risk in Latin America provides evidence-based guidance to policymakers that will help increase the effectiveness of their youth investment program. Drawing on the authors' detailed analyses, the book describes twenty-three policies and programs that youth development experts agree are the basis of a quality youth development portfolio, from early childhood development programs to parent training to cash transfers for positive behaviors. It also lays out strategies for implementing this effective youth portfolio in a budget-constrained environment by reallocation of resources away from.

This publication examines the informal economy in Latin America, exploring root causes and reasons for and implications of its growth, from a variety of perspectives ranging from a concern with the protection of workers and the productivity of firms to the determinants of tax evasion. It argues that overcoming this "culture of informality" will require actions to increase aggregate productivity in the economy, reform poorly designed regulations and social policies, and increase the legitimacy of the state by improving the quality and fairness of state institutions and governance.

This study uses an ecological framework to consider negative behaviors and outcomes observed among Caribbean youth, and also to identify ways to enhance positive influences. Casting aside the often narrow view taken of "youth" as a marginal issue, this report advocates the prioritization of youth development across all sectors, and identifies key principles and actions for moving forward.

Over the past two decades, the Latin America and Caribbean region has made enormous strides in terms of political and economic development. Twelve countries held successful elections for head of government in 2006, including a close election in Mexico. To date in 2007, the Bahamas held elections in May; elections are scheduled for Jamaica and Guatemala in September, Argentina in October, and are due to be called in Trinidad and Tobago by October. Although the region overall experienced an economic setback in 2002-2003, it has rebounded since 2004, most recently experiencing a growth rate over 5% in 2006. Despite this progress, several nations face considerable challenges that affect U.S. interests and policy in the region. These include persistent poverty, violent guerrilla conflicts, autocratic leaders, drug trafficking, increasing crime, and the rise of a new form of populism in several countries. This book provides an overview of U.S. relations with Latin America and the Caribbean.

The 1987 American Association of School Administrators survey on students at risk reported that school districts and administrators are alarmed about increasing dropout rates and are taking action to stem this tide. This report analyzes the problems of at-risk youth and recounts ameliorative efforts throughout the United States. Section A reviews various forces placing students at risk. Societal forces include poverty, the hardships accompanying minority status, and the weakening of home influence. Forces originating with schools include the troubled curriculum, inappropriate academic standards, and the insensitive school atmosphere. Section B describes private- and public-sector efforts to work with schools to help high risk students complete their education and enjoy better employment prospects. Section C explains how to identify at-risk students, outlines holistic approaches, and describes model programs addressing specific school and youth issues, such as teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, and suicide. This section closes by detailing four main approaches to deal with at-risk youth: alternative curriculum, counseling, tutorials, and work-related business partnerships. Appendix A reviews the Committee on Economic Development's "Children in Need" report. Appendix B describes Project Literacy U.S., while Appendices C and D provide a statement and comments on at-risk youth from the Forum of Educational Organization Leaders. Three other appendices concerning international policies, child abuse prevention, and developing an at-risk policy are included. (MLH)
