Success for Out of School Youth
North Carolina is a recipient of a Consortium Incentive Grant, Success for Out of School Youth (SOSY), and participated in the Opportunities for Out of School Youth Consortium, which led to the the development of materials on the OSY website. The materials are free for your use and range from recruitment ideas to MP3 files for teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
Out of School Youth (OSY) are a rapidly growing group of Migrant students in the North Carolina Migrant Education Program. Most of our OSY students are "here-to-work" and have limited time to participate in classes. While many programs have compiled vast collections of resources for working with OSY, other programs are newcomers to the field. The links below may be of use to your program as you develop instructional services for OSY. This resource will be frequently updated, as new links and materials are discovered.
