|Service and Conservation Corps
Service and Conservation Corps engages young adults in full-time community service, job training, and educational activities. The program serves youth typically between the ages of 17 and 26 who have dropped out of school, been involved with the criminal justice system, or face other barriers to success. The WWC reviewed 23 studies that investigated the effects of Service and Conservation Corps. One study meets WWC evidence standards with reservations. This study included 626 at-risk youths primarily between ages 17-26 who participated in community service projects in California, Florida, New York, and Washington State. Based on this study, the WWC found Service and Conservation Corps to have no discernible effects on completing school for at-risk youth.

|1993/03 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:93/03) Methodology Report
This report describes the procedures and results of the full-scale implementation of the B&B:93/03 study. Students who earned a bachelor's degree in 1992-93 were first interviewed in 1993 and then subsequently in 1994 and 1997. This is the final follow-up interview of the B&B:93 cohort, 10 years following completion of the bachelor's degree. The results of this study offer an opportunity to assess the value of a baccalaureate degree at a time when sample members are becoming established in their careers. Specific topics of interest include length of time to complete a baccalaureate degree, the pursuit of additional postsecondary education beyond a bachelor's degree, and employment outcomes.
|Statistics in Brief: Volunteer Service by Young People From High School Through Early Adulthood
This Statistics in Brief examines the patterns and characteristics of individual involvement in community service activities from high school through early adulthood. Using data from the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88), this Brief describes the characteristics of young adults who volunteered, when they volunteered, why they volunteered, and for which types of organizations they volunteered. Based on data from the NELS:88 1992 sample of 12th-grade students—who were asked about their high school volunteer service for the period 1990–92 and then re-interviewed in 1994 and again in 2000—this Brief also examines whether high school volunteer service was related to volunteering 2 years and 8 years after their scheduled high school graduation.

|National Postsecondary Student Aid Study 1999-2000 [NPSAS:2000] Methodology Report
This report describes the methods and procedures used for the 2000 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:2000). NPSAS:2000 is a comprehensive study of financial aid among postsecondary education students in the United States and Puerto Rico that provides information on trends in financial aid and on the ways in which families pay for postsecondary education. NPSAS:2000 included important changes from previous NPSAS surveys (conducted in 1987, 1990, 1993, and 1996) in its sample design and collection of data. For example, the current study is the first to utilize a Web-based computer-assisted data entry (Web-CADE) system for student record abstraction. However, sufficient comparability in survey design and instrumentation was maintained to ensure that important comparisons with past NPSAS studies could be made.
