Talking About Youth Transitions was produced by Fenton Communications, a firm that specializes in communications for the public interest sector, at the request of the Youth Transition Funders Group, a network of grant makers committed to ensuring that all young people between the ages of 14 and 24 become “Connected by 25” to caring adults, institutions and support systems that will enable them to succeed throughout adulthood. It grew out of extensive research in the field, which included: \textgreaterA “perceptual survey” of both grant makers and field practitioners, so we understood how you saw challenges and the unique character of the issues; \textgreaterAn audit of how the news media cover issues related to youth at risk; \textgreaterA review of previous Connect for kids framing and messaging work; \textgreaterA review of common language used by organizations dealing with the issues of youth transition; and \textgreaterOur own analysis of current messaging around issues of youth transition
