Who Are Opportunity Youth?
Opportunity Youth are young adults ages 16 to 24 who are not enrolled in school and not working full or part time. These individuals are sometimes referred to as disconnected youth, however, at Carolina Across 100 we prefer “Opportunity Youth” because it captures our sense of optimism that all young people can thrive if we provide the systems, tools, and resources necessary for navigating this period of life.
What is Our State, Our Work?
A two-year initiative from Carolina Across 100 to connect young adults to living wage employment opportunities across North Carolina.
