Young people and their parents, teachers, and employers tell us how building life skills improved family dynamics—especially for young women, helped them land a job, and equipped them to succeed as entrepreneurs, with solutions such as:

Overcoming barriers to opportunity

PTS helps young people counter the forces beyond their control that can limit their access to opportunity and ability to reach their full potential. Learn more
