How to keep teenagers from becoming "disconnected" youth, a State of Opportunity special

If you missed the show, it's definitely worth your time. 

You can listen on an intimate but really informative conversation on young people heading toward or already on the fringes of society. They're not working, not in school and definitely not set up for a successful adulthood.

Jennifer White talks to Harvard professor and researcher Hunter Gelbach, social worker Kasie White. the director of Remix Genesee, Alexandria from Remix, who has beaten a lot of odds and become an expert we would trust on the issue of disconnected youth. State of Opportunity listeners added their insight and questions for our guests through calls and facebook comments.

The conversation was so engaging we didn't have enough time for it all, so we'll also be following up with Kasie White and Alexandria tomorrow on All Things Considered.
