This Info Brief describes the current status of and opportunities for a comprehensive cross-disciplinary professional development system for youth service professionals. It also discusses next steps for systems, professionals, and policy makers.

Youth service professionals in the workforce development system are responsible for shaping the future workers and leaders of this nation’s economy. Every day, they help young people, ages 14 to 25, to prepare for transition to adulthood and successful employment. They do this work in various settings including educational, workforce development, after school, and community-based organizations. These professionals are called upon to serve all youth, including youth with disabilities, and other disadvantaged groups such as youth involved in the juvenile justice and foster care systems.
