The Opportunity Youth Forum (OYF) is a network of collaboratives in urban, rural, and tribal communities across the U. S. seeking to create reconnection pathways for better outcomes in education, employment, and well-being for opportunity youth. Opportunity youth are young adults, 16-24 years of age, who are neither working nor engaged in education.
Youth Connection Across The Opportunity Youth Forum in 2021 reports on network-wide changes in the OYF Common Measures, a set of population-level indicators that track numbers of OY and their characteristics in each OYF community. This report summarizes that data across the entire OYF network.
More information on how OYF uses data to drive change can be found on our Data For Impact pages.
