Title:The economic value of opportunity youth
Organization:Corporation for National and Community Service
Short Description:In their early adult years, it is important for youth to gain additional skills through further educational, training, and work experience. Yet, many of America’s youth are neither enrolled in school nor participating in the labor market – they are not investing in their human capital or earning income. Their disconnection represents a significant loss of economic opportunity for the nation.
Annotation:In their early adult years, it is important for youth to gain additional skills through further educational, training, and work experience. Yet, many of America’s youth are neither enrolled in school nor participating in the labor market – they are not investing in their human capital or earning income. Their disconnection represents a significant loss of economic opportunity for the nation. This report examines the status of these ‘opportunity youth’. For the 16-24 age group, the authors estimate that at least 6.7 million (17%) are currently ‘opportunity youth’. These youth are disproportionately male and from minority groups, but substantial rates are found for all youth groups.
