According to the Aspen Institute Forum there are currently 4.6 million opportunity youth – defined as young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who are neither enrolled in school nor participating in the labor market. In 2021 R3 Student Outreach in partnership with COSA DHS set out to resource opportunity youth with professional development training opportunities and engagement. Through weeks of training and internship, we had a front row seat to the trauma, difficulties and circumstance opportunity youth must overcome to be successful.
Join us for a panel discussion on the needs & challenges of opportunity youth and how you can be a part of supporting youth with extreme barriers.
**Registration for this event is free of charge but seating is limited.
