National Youth Service Providers.

Strong Connections.

The organizations included here provide services directly, or through school-based programs, to opportunity youth. We celebrate their efforts and seek to partner with them to share expertise, opportunities, and connections wherever possible.

School-Based Organizations.

With recent studies from the UChicago Consortium on School Research and the Baltimore Education Research Consortium confirming that at least 25% of high school seniors don’t have a post-secondary placement or a job just before graduation, it is imperative that we connect employers to school-based organizations to head off the volume of opportunity youth before it languishes on the sidelines, decreasing job and earning power the longer they remain disconnected.
