Our Beginning

In 2012, the greater Phoenix area had the highest rate of opportunity youth among the 25 largest metropolitan cities in the United States. Metro Phoenix area is home to an estimated 92,000 young adults disengaged from work and school – nearly 1 in every 5 (Morrison Institute, 2015). The community of Maricopa county has come together to address this challenge.

 

Our Vision

All youth will be successful and on track in education, career and life.

 

Our Mission

We harness the power of cross-sector collaboration to create a comprehensive system of opportunity that reengages the Valley’s disconnected youth.

 

Our Goal

To achieve an 11% Opportunity Youth rate in Maricopa County by 2020.
