Investing in our Future Workforce

A strong and healthy economy today and in the future depends on the success of young people in the labor market. Today, millions of youth are not working or in school—especially youth from poor communities, youth of color, and youth facing other barriers to employment. Our policy efforts work to ensure that these opportunity youth can access and succeed in employment and training.
