Only one in five 15-year-olds in the United States have the kind of meaningful relationships with adults beyond their family that help them succeed in life, according to a study released today by Best Buy and Search Institute. This gap interferes with their development, and suggests concrete, powerful ways that adults in schools, neighborhoods, youth organizations, and other settings can have a positive difference in young people's lives.

Adults play an important role in forming relationships with teens, listening to them and serving as positive role models -- and teens who have these relationships have a significant leg up when it comes to staying, or getting, on a path to success.
