Campaign for Tomorrow's Workforce: Helping Disconnected Youth
In New York City, an estimated 170,000 to 200,000 young adults between the ages of ages 16 and 24 are neither in school nor in the workforce. To address the critical issue of this growing population of "disconnected" youth, UNH is collaborating with the Neighborhood Family Services Coalition (NFSC), and the Community Service Society (CSS), in an important advocacy effort entitled the Campaign for Tomorrow's Workforce (CTW).
The goal of the CTW is to advance new public policy and generate support for the increased investment needed to build and sustain a coordinated, high-quality, at-scale system of programs and services to prepare New York City's young adults to succeed in the workforce. Addressing the needs of this population is crucial to the economic future of the City and the health of communities across the City.
Please visit the CTW website for more information, or contact Kevin Douglas, Policy Analyst.
