The Opportunity Youth Forum was launched in 2012 as a national movement to create innovative, place-based and collaborative solutions to reconnect America’s then 6.7 million opportunity youth to education and employment.
Today, the Opportunity Youth Forum is a network of over two dozen urban, rural, and tribal communities that are scaling multiple reconnection pathways to achieve better outcomes in education and employment for opportunity youth with a focus on both systems-wide and community-level changes. Their impact has been impressive.
Watch Sylvia Cheuy as she welcomes Monique Miles, Director of the Opportunity Youth Forum and the Deputy Director of the Forum for Community Solutions at the Aspen Institute and her colleagues to share lessons and insights about how the OYF Network monitors outcomes and measures its impact both locally and nationally. You will also hear more about how the Opportunity Youth Forum’s efforts to monitor outcomes and impact are leveraged to both inform and advance the overall strategy of OYF network partners.
