P/PV's Summer Training and Education Program (STEP) model was designed to target those who were most likely to drop out -- 14- and 15-year-olds who were economically and academically disadvantaged. Our previous evaluations found significant short-term improvements in reading, math and sexual responsibility knowledge for the treatment group compared with the control group. This report, which presents postprogram impacts of STEP participation on the youth's educational achievements, sexual behavior and economic conditions, finds no evidence to suggest that the short-term STEP intervention had long-term impacts. The report does, however, present a clear picture of how the behaviors of these youth evolve, which may help inform future policies and programs targeted at this population.
