Youth Action Hour #3

Opportunity Youth Rising

June 28, 2021


Opportunity Youth, more commonly known as disconnected youth, is a term for young adults between the ages of 16-24 who are not in school and not working. In 2018, the youth disconnection rate was 4.3 million, and COVID-19 has increased youth disconnection rates and brought these issues to the forefront like never before.

Continue to join us across social media to uplift the Opportunity Youth Network, their youth leaders, national campaign, and their policy priorities for the 117th Congress.
