Introducing Opportunity Youth United: Young People Transforming our Nation

Our democracy got a little stronger with the launch of Opportunity Youth United, a national movement to increase opportunity and decrease poverty in America through practical policy solutions drawn from the experiences of its young leaders. With over a thousand members and growing, OYU brings together the millions of “opportunity youth”—young people disconnected from school and the workforce—and their allies around a shared vision for change.

The new platform, highlights the stories, ideas and policy solutions of young leaders, and offers resources and calls to action to empower members and grow the movement. We are proud to be part of Opportunity Youth United! Join us at
