US: Navigating the Path to a Successful Career: The Vitality of Vital Records
Youth Today – August 25, 2017
Navigating the Path to a Successful Career: The Vitality of Vital Records. There is, however, an undocumented population of U.S. citizens among us: system-involved youth.

Not having these records makes smoothly transitioning to adulthood difficult, if not impossible.
