Maricopa County is home to an estimated 73,000 youth ages 16-24 who are not in school or working; 14.5% of youth across the County are disengaged from school and work, compared with 14.6% in the state of Arizona and 12.3% nationally.
All youth will be successful and on track in education, career and life.
We harness the power of cross-sector collaboration to create a comprehensive system of opportunity that reengages the Valley’s disconnected youth.
