Opportunity youth, sometimes referred to as disconnected youth, are between the ages of 16 and 24 and are neither in school nor working. Opportunity youth are our future and deserve our urgent attention and investment. We all have a stake in helping the next generation meaningfully connect to education, the economy and civic life. Many are looking for work that they can’t find, often because they lack the technical, communication and problem-solving skills required by today’s job market. And too many young people can’t come up with the money to pay for increasingly expensive post-secondary job training or college they need to get ahead. In fact, some of them enrolled in college, only to drop out because of financial constraints.
