Abstract (Summary)

Out of School Youth encompass a unique group of individuals who are not benefiting from the free and appropriate public education they are eligible to receive. The challenges faced by this group are immense; however, as evident in this study, they can be overcome. This study found that with flexible educational platforms, training on the U.S. education system, and additional familial supports, these students can succeed and obtain a U.S. high school diploma. In addition, the themes that emerged from this study were used to put together a structural outline for educators looking to support this group of students within their facilities.
