Harriet Lane Healthy Futures Program
The Harriet Lane Clinic Healthy Futures Program is to Increase Academic or Workforce Development Success Among Adolescents and Young Adults

The purpose of the Harriet Lane Clinic Healthy Futures Program is to increase academic or workforce development success among adolescents and young adults. To this end, the Healthy Futures educational intervention includes motivational interviewing and knowledge and skill building activities that will focus on improving educational, vocational, health, and self sufficiency outcomes for youth who attend the Harriet Lane Clinic. Goals of this youth development project include determining what factors are associated with school engagement, parental academic involvement, and future planning.

This is a feasibility study to examine if an intervention in a primary care setting can recruit and retain adolescents and young adults and influence future planning behaviors.

We will address the following research Aims:

  1. To assess the feasibility of a career development program provided to low income adolescents and young adults in a pediatric primary care setting.
  2. To assess the receptiveness of adolescents and young adults in pediatric primary care setting to future planning interventions.
  3. To assess the impact of a career development program in improving educational, workforce, and health attitudes and outcomes for adolescents and young adults.

The Healthy Futures Program is an interactive, multi-session training program. There will be participants in 3 different intervention tracks (College/vocational school, Job, and Career Planning). Tracks are assigned to participants based on interest and age. During the screening process, participants who are 16 years old or older will be asked if they are interested in participating in a program designed to help them apply to college or job training services. Based on their preference, they will be assigned a college or job track. Participants who are 14 and 15 years old will automatically be assigned to the career planning track.
