The purpose of this project is to gather data on the post secondary experiences of young adults in Grundy County. Data collection will be accomplished through a community based participatory research project that enlists students from the POLS210B Politics of Poverty and Inequality course in a community engagement experience working with community partners. We will work with Grundy County high school, and Emily Partin, Director of the Grundy County Schools’ Family Resource Center. Telephone and online interviews with Grundy County high school alum will generate data that can inform evaluations of existing programs at the high school, and the structure and content of future initiatives aimed at enhancing post secondary resources and supports on the Mountain.
