ACE MV to Host 2021 Rural Scholars

We are excited to share that ACE MV has been selected by the Dukes County Health Council to host the 2021 Rural Scholars. Nursing and medical students from UMass Medical School are traveling to Martha’s Vineyard to conduct research that aims to benefit the MV youth population, by collecting information that clarifies how disconnected youth ages 16-26 experience life on MV and what services/supports they need/desire to actualize their professional and educational aspirations. Disconnected youth, as defined for this study’s purpose, are those young persons who are not currently enrolled in high school or post-secondary education and/or are currently unemployed.

To date, no large-scale study or evaluation has been able to capture the educational, professional, and personal experiences of this population. The outcome of the study will be shared with the Martha’s Vineyard community on November 1, 2021 and the results will allow various stakeholders to use them in building programs and services for this population, including workforce development. Monday, November 21, 5pm-6:30pm at MVRHS Library. All are welcome to attend.
