This is the final evaluation of PACTS (Parents As Career Transition Supports), an innovative Brotherhood pilot project that aims to empower parents to better support their children's transition from school to work and/or further education by building their knowledge of post-school pathways and the contemporary job market. The study found clear benefits to parents, including providing relevant information and skills, addressing their concerns and fostering communication with children about career options, but also noted that the recruitment of parents to the program was resource-intensive.
