As part of the Reconnecting Youth Campaign's effort to collect stories and insights from every Congressional district in the U.S., check out this short video featuring alumni of Civicorps, which re-engages young adults, ages 18 to 26, to earn their high school diplomas and embark on family sustaining careers. Learn why investing in proven programs like Civicorps matters to our communities and our nation.

The Reconnecting Youth Campaign is a collaborative national campaign calling on Congress to invest in America's future by funding 1 million pathways to education, training, national service and employment opportunities for Opportunity Youth, 16- to 24-year-olds who are not in school or work. In February 2018, participants with Civicorps met with Rep. Barbara Lee in Oakland, California to talk about creating more pathways in the state, and to share successes of the program.
