2019-20 Opportunity Youth Coordinator
Our partnership is comprised of representatives from over 300 local organizations, working in networks to identify, align, and scale strategies that will change the system of education in Milwaukee to work for all students. This includes ensuring all young people use postsecondary education or training to advance their opportunities beyond high school and prepare for a successful career. Since Fall 2016, the scope of this goal has been expanded to develop and implement a citywide strategy to support out-of-school/out-of-work youth and young adults, referred to as Opportunity Youth. As a community we are asking the following question: for those youth who fall through the cracks, what must we do to ensure they get back on track? The VISTA will work closely with goal managers, network partners, and local subject matter experts on researching effective interventions, organizing and deploying pilot projects, measuring impact, and developing strategies with local institutions and organizations to improve the lives of opportunity youth.
