the opportunity divide

The opportunity-divide separates employers grappling with 3.5 million job vacancies due to a lack of skilled workers from the untapped potential of 5.5 million Opportunity Youth – young adults ages 18-24 that are out work and not in school. In between these two groups that need each other to succeed, is a youth unemployment crisis and outdated workforce practices that hurt businesses, young adults and communities.

Together, we must and can change this.
