What were some of the things we learned from Wisconsin PROMISE? In this presentation we highlight resources for teenagers, young adults and family members (https://beforeage18.org/) and practitioners (https://promising-practices.com/). These resources were developed with youth, family and practitioner input as part of the PROMISE grant, a youth and family centered federal grant that assisted youth and family members meet their school, work, and financial goals.
