Opportunity Youth United

Opportunity Youth United is a national movement of young people and allies working to increase opportunity and decrease poverty in America.

In the United States, more than 4.6 million young people between the ages of 16 and 24 are neither in school nor employed. About half of us are living in poverty.  In recent years we have been called “Opportunity Youth” both because we are seeking opportunity and we offer the nation an opportunity if it would invest in ways for us to rebuild our communities and our lives.
