Abstract: 

This report highlights Opportunity Youth Forum (OYF) communities that are working to improve policies and programs for opportunity youth, who are 16- to 24-year-olds out of work and school. The OYF began as a group of 21 community collaboratives and has grown to a network of more than two dozen urban, rural, and tribal communities. Roughly one-quarter (about 1.2 million) of all opportunity youth in the United States reside in or near OYF communities. The authors discuss evaluation findings that demonstrate the variety of strategies being employed across the network
and provide ideas for those interested in improving programs and policies to support opportunity youth in their communities. (author abstract modified)
