The Youth Opportunity Guarantee: A Framework for Success

This report introduces a Youth Opportunity Guarantee of education, training, and employment for all youth ages 16 to 24 in the United States. After years of extensive research and consultation with well over 100 experts and stakeholders, GCPI has created a framework that integrates secondary, postsecondary, and employment systems to make long-term labor market success a reality for all youth in the United States.

Ensuring the Youth Opportunity Guarantee Works for Undocumented Youth

Undocumented youth are an integral part of the United States. Regardless of documentation status, immigrants contribute to our country—supporting their families, serving their communities, and contributing to local, state and national economies. However, the nearly 2.1 million undocumented youth under the age of 24 are often left out of opportunities and programs, and therefore face uncertainty about their job prospects and futures.

Transition to the Green Economy: Vehicle for the Youth Opportunity Guarantee? 

More than eight years into an economic recovery, the labor market is not bringing young people into the labor force. Approximately 4.6 million young Americans remain disconnected from school and work. Changing how the labor market works for young people requires a national strategy for systemic reform. A transition to a green economy could be a catalyzing force for this vision.
