Young People Like Me
‘Young People Like Me: What Teens and Young Adults in the Northern NEK Think, Want and Hope. (2010). Jennifer A. Smith and Melanie Wilson. 40 pp.
This survey and photo project from the upper Northeast Kingdom area of Vermont tapped almost 300 young people on topics such as jobs, adults, school, their communities, and the challenge of becoming adults. ‘101 Youth Voices,’ a report of the findings from a similar project in the southern part of the NEK, is a companion report to ‘Young People Like Me.’ Both were produced as part of a federally funded demonstration project focusing on building better support systems for homeless youth in rural areas.
