Aspen Institute – Collective Impact for Opportunity Youth

“This report is intended to serve as a call-to-action for communities to bring together systems and stakeholders to improve outcomes for Opportunity Youth and to provide a high-level framework for a collective impact approach that will enable them to do so.”

“We define Opportunity Youth as youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who are neither enrolled in school nor participating in the labor market. This definition comes from the White House Council for Community Solutions and other prominent resources in the field, including Opportunity Road and The Economic Value of Opportunity Youth. While we recognize the critical importance of ensuring that youth are supported from cradle to career, this paper will address only the challenges and approaches around the population of youth aged 16 to 24 who are already disconnected, and not those who are at-risk or off-track but still in school.”
