"At-risk youth" is a term that is often used in different contexts. Youth who fall under the label of "at-risk" could be at risk for abusing illegal drugs and/or alcohol, breaking the law, committing suicide, engaging in sexually promiscuous behavior, or dropping out of school before they receive a high school diploma. According to Oakland (1992), the percentage of students dropping out of high school ranges from 17% to 25%. The reasons why some youth do not succeed in school and life are as numerous as the individuals themselves.
