UNITE-LA Today: Opportunity Youth at the Forefront

UNITE-LA recently published their “Fostering Statewide Prosperity Through California’s Opportunity Youth.”

This brief highlights why our California Legislature cannot afford to overlook the significant, moral imperative and the economic benefits our communities can reap by investing in our state’s opportunity youth. Youth disconnection from work and school is a crisis that requires urgent action, especially considering the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated youth disconnection and erased years of progress. We urge our state policymakers to support California’s opportunity youth in effective engagement with educational institutions, supportive services and career opportunities.
