New Report Released on the Value of Investing in Opportunity Youth​

The Aspen Institute for Community Solutions released a landmark report on the return on investment associated with reengaging opportunity youth. This report, authored by John Bridgeland and colleagues, documents the economic and societal costs associated with young people’s disconnection from school and work, and the potential savings of reengagement. This report also provides a federal funding roadmap and set of policy recommendations suggesting federal programs and strategies that best reengage opportunity youth.
