This article presents information on the characteristics and postschool
outcomes of more than 3,000 youth who participated in the Bridges
from School-to-Work internship program at seven sites from 1993
to 1997. Gender, race, and primary disability did not make a significant
difference in employment status at six months post-internship. According
to the authors, work behaviors during the internship were highly
predictive of later employment status.
